Travelmarvel caters largely to cruisers from Australia and New Zealand, offering a comfortable onboard experience with plenty of style and inclusions, as well as value for money. Perks include most sightseeing, fees such as tipping and port charges, complimentary use of bikes and wireless Internet. Coffee and tea is available free of charge, bottled water is provided daily, and there are complimentary local beers, wine and soft drinks included with lunch and dinner. A major drawcard is its Insider Experiences, allowing passengers to "live like a local" while gaining insights into a destination's culture and customs. Experiences can include anything from learning about the production of schnapps at a family-run distillery in Austria, to enjoying a private Oktoberfest event in Bavaria, or attending a paella cooking demonstration in Spain.
