Most people believe that the southernmost part of Lake Lucerne is the most scenic. In German, it is the Urnersee, which means the Lake of (Canton) Uri). In the link to the Swiss Path and my hike, that I posted above, you can get some idea what it is like. However, all of the lake has nearby mountains, and any ride is scenic.
At the beginning of that thread, I have included a map of the lake showing the boat routes/stops. It is upside down-South is at the top.
Sometimes, if have time, I take the train to Flüelen and ride the boat back all the way to Luzern....about a 3 or4 hour ride depending on which journey you select... Some make more stops than others
However, because I like the southernmost part best and don't want to take quite so much time, sometimes I ride the boat as far as Brunnen, get off and walk 10 minutes to the train station and take the train back to Luzern. Or, I ride the boat as far as Vitznau, get off there and go up on the Rigi.
All the boats have at least snacks and drinks, and most have restaurants.
Some are steam powered paddlewheelers. The coumns in the timetable I linked just above have a boat at the top for the routes that normally have a paddlewheel boat with a steam engine for power.
