My wife’s birthday trip, she loved it. Excellent trip around the lake as the ship takes its regular route. Great views. Takes 2 hours, very beautiful, very worthwhile. Recommend paying for 1st class to go upper deck. Head to the front and try get great seats (deckchairs)….and treat yourself to a glass of champagne to add something special!

Enjoyed the trip and the beautiful scenery. Would have been nice togavs a piped commentary to enable us to see and understand where we were going. Booked on line but weren't offered the chance to buy a first class ticket to enable us to sit on the upper deck.

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.
