The riverboat is owned by the Swiss company Scylla Cruises. In 2012-2020, the vessel was operated under charter by the UK cruisetour company Riviera Travel. Since 2020, the boat is chartered to VIVA Cruises (Scylla-owned subsidiary and travel brand).

MS Lord Byron Wiki

Vessel's construction (hull and superstructure) was done at the Vahali Shipyard in Belgrade Serbia. The 1923-founded Dutch shipbuilding company (Scheepswerf En Machinefabriek Vahali BV) owns and operates yards in Serbia (Belgrade, and Zasavica) and in Holland (Gendt). Vahali Shipyard Zasavica was officially opened in 2013. Following the construction in Serbia, the cruise ship was towed to Holland for final outfitting at Scheepswerf Vahali (Gendt).

In 2020, the vessel's flag-state/registry was changed from Malta (MMSI 229346000, registered in Valletta) to Switzerland (MMSI 269057570, registered in Basel).

In 2024 was completed an extensive refurbishment project that resulted in redesigned and renovated public areas, passenger cabins, and aft Bistro. The enhancements included new furnishings and carpeting.
