Travelmarvel Jewel 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 2006-2013, the Travelmarvel ship Jewel was operated as "Avalon Tranquility" by the US-based cruise tour company Avalon Waterways. Sistership (by design) is the fleet mate Travelmarvel Diamond (fka Avalon Imagery).

Travelmarvel Jewel 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.
