Travelmarvel Cruises


As part of the renowned APT group, Travelmarvel offers customers an ‘everyday’ travel option. Since its beginnings in Melbourne during the 1980s, this company has developed a reputation for providing holidays with great value for money. In addition to their railway and coach tours, Travelmarvel offers river cruises and ocean cruises that are operated in partnership with some of the biggest cruising lines around the world.

The Travelmarvel river cruising itineraries travel through the waterways of Europe, Vietnam, Cambodia, Burma, India and South America, with cruises through China operated in conjunction with Victoria Cruises. Some of the company’s land-based tours may also include cruising segments in their itineraries.  

On a Travelmarvel ocean cruise, you can sail alongside Alaska’s icebergs, come face-to-face with wildlife in the Galapagos Islands, dive into Australia’s Kimberley Coast and marvel at the striking beauty of the Norwegian fjords. Ocean cruises to Alaska are run in partnership with Holland America Line, so you can be sure that accommodation and available facilities are top notch. Meanwhile, Norwegian cruises use the Hurtigruten ships and voyages to Australia utilise the Coral Princess from the Coral Expeditions line.

Each cruising itinerary and ship differs in size, facilities and dining and entertainment options, but you’ll be sure to find that great value for money and a reliable tour operator on a Travelmarvel cruise no matter where you travel.

Travelmarvel’s river ships are designed for comfort so that you have a relaxing space to retreat to after a full day spent sightseeing. Meals on board are prepared using fresh, local ingredients and served in the ship’s spacious dining room. The layout and size of the dining room may differ between ships, but the quality of food does not. Dishes will also incorporate regional flavours to reflect the destination and enhance your cultural experience. Select itineraries feature 5-course, a la carte menus for dinner while others may offer 3-course or buffet dinners. Similarly, Travelmarvel’s ocean cruises aim for the same level of culinary prowess to ensure all guests thoroughly enjoy their time on board.

Activities & Entertainment

The activities and entertainment available varies between the different Travelmarvel ships and itineraries. Some possible features include an expansive observation deck, Jacuzzi, swimming pool, bar and lounge, but you’ll be sure to otherwise enjoy the hotel-like feel and service of each Travelmarvel ship. Travelmarvel also organise onshore excursions conducted in small groups with an English-speaking guide to enhance your experience. You can also hire out a free bicycle on your Travelmarvel ship and find your own adventure discovering quaint towns, hidden treasures and ancient marvels. The cost of excursions are all included in one upfront price so all you have to worry about is having fun – cook authentic paella in Spain, walk through a rural fishing town in Vietnam, or attend a classical concert in Vienna!
