<<"But looking at the timings I don't think I can take steamboat atleast
from Lucerne (North to South) as its very late (11:12pm) and I won't be
able to do Rigi on that day. Seems there is only option, start early go
to rigi and get to Fluelen by train to save time by 2pm and take the
complete boat ride to North, not sure if this will be doable.">>
Without looking at details, it might be possible, but there would not be much time on the Rigi.
The earliest that you could get to Rigi-Kulm is 0845, by taking the train from Luzern to Arth-Goldau at 0706 or 0718, and go up from Arth- Goldau. That route is less scenic that going up from Vitznau.
Then, you would go back down via Arth Goldau at 1204, train to Flüelen arriving at 1346. You'd sacrifice some nice lake scenery.
I'd wonder if you could fit in the cog-rail route down to Vitznau- get the views- and catch the bus that runs along the shore line to Brunnen RR station and pick up a train to Flüelen. The bus also goes through Weggis before Vitznau.
Don't have time to check it out now, but if the connections fit together, it could work. Take a look at the time tables.Actual travel time could be as little as 1 1/2 hours ( guesstimate) not counting connection times.
Those old paddlewheelers are fun to ride.
