>> we would be riding the Voralpen-Express 2579 then change to a train, is that correct? If so, I thought it would take longer to travel (5 hours) like the Gotthard Panorama Express?
No, that's not correct. The Voralpen-Express is a train that runs between Luzern and St Gallen, not a boat. By default, the timetable brings up the fastest travel options, which is almost never a boat :-)
To get the timetable to show you the boats between Luzern and Flüelen, you need to click on "Advanced search". Then scroll down to where you can select the mode of transport. Click "Unselect means of transport", which will removed ticks from all boxes. Then click on "Ship".
