Travelmarvel Cruises Tips, Activities, and Overview

Who goes on Travelmarvel cruise ships?

The majority of Travelmarvel's cruisers are from Australia and New Zealand and are generally aged 55-plus. Children under the age of 8 are not permitted.

Do I have to dress up on a Travelmarvel cruise?

Not really. Most people dress casually onboard during the day; however, some opt to dress up for a night out in town. Smarter casual outfits (think trousers and collared shirt for men, and slacks and a blouse for women) are the norm for the evenings, in general, and a dressier outfit is appropriate for the welcome dinner.

Is everything free on Travelmarvel cruises?

No, and what's included often varies by itinerary. Generally, all meals and drinks onboard the ship, most sightseeing, onboard entertainment, transfers and gratuities are included in the cruise fare. Many itineraries also include daily bottled water, tea and coffee, as well as soft drinks, beer and local wine during lunch and dinner.

Extra charges include optional shore excursions, most beverages outside of lunch and dinner, and any optional purchases onboard your ship.

What are Travelmarvel’s most popular activities?

Travelmarvel's most popular offering is its range of "Insider Experiences," which give passengers the chance to experience a destination like a local, with options like a private Oktoberfest celebration in Germany or an intimate lunch with a local family in Vietnam.

Why go with Travelmarvel?

  • Premium cruising with value-for-money pricing.
  • "Live like a local" range of immersive experiences.
  • Comfortable fleet of new or recently refurbished vessels.

Fantastic cruise

From the moment we took our cases to the boat early the staff were fantastic.We packed our bags and they moved our cases and took us by bus to the next ship (The Vega) where we had the same room and another great staff.Read More

Not what we paid for

Those who wished to see Budapest had to take the bus back (3 1/2 hr) each way and a quick tour before coming back to Vienna.We did not expect to miss cities and towns altogether, due to low water levels we missed 2 nights in Budapest and 1 night in Regensburg.Read More

Great Experience

There is, in addition to the restaurant, a bar at the back of the ship which provides "pub" food but we only ate there at lunchtime once - it was good but not as good as the restaurant.The service was great and the food was particularly good.Read More
