Went on the cruise during a day trip to Montreux. It was easy to get to from the train station. It was totally worth it, a lot of fun and a great way to see some views and spend some time. I paid for the 1st class/top deck upgrade and it was definitely worth it - there was a lot more space and good indoor and outdoor access. You can also buy food and drinks on the boat as well. Lots of fun, definitely gonna look into doing it again next time family is in town.

Wonderful excursion on the lake with a very friendly crew and competent captain. Luckily the weather was good, otherwise there would have been a nice lounge inside where you could have seen the area well. For an even better view 1. Select the upper deck: the upgrade is easy and uncomplicated, even on the ship.

It was an excellent cruise around the lake that gave a tremendous exposure of Switzerland from its two dominant cultural influences: French and German. A good way to spend time to enjoy the beautiful Swiss scenery.
