Travelmarvel Diamond Wiki
The vessel is owned by Premicon AG (funds and investments company) and operated under charter by the Australian cruise and tour operator Travelmarvel. Between 2007-2013, the Travelmarvel ship Diamond was operated as "Avalon Imagery" by the US-based cruise tour company Avalon Waterways. Sistership (by design) is the fleet mate Travelmarvel Jewel (fka Avalon Tranquility).
MS Travelmarvel Diamond belongs to the TwinCruiser boat type, in which passenger sections are structurally separated from the drive unit. River ships of the TwinCruiser-class have two separate hulls linked to each other by clutches. The advantage of such separating is that the transmission of vibrations and noises can be mostly avoided.
