>> I know there is a restaurant on board this boat, but is there any alternative such as sandwiches? I see there are snacks that can be bought, but what does that mean? Is there any substantial food items?
I see you are familiar with the Vierwaldstättersee/Lake Lucerne boat site, so have you seen the gastronomy page, which has downloadable menus?
I am not 100% sure about this, but the way I read it, a boat will have either a restaurant service or a snacks service, but not both. Which service any particular boat offers is indicated by either a "crossed knife and fork" symbol or a "wine glass" symbol in the timetable, the knife and fork indicating a restaurant, the wine glass indicating a snacks service.
From my observation, people eating in the onboard restaurant focus their attention on their dining companions and the food, and end up paying little attention to the views ;) The restaurant is not usually the best place for seeing the views anyway!
Personally, I prefer to have food I can take with me when I move around the boat to enjoy the views, whether it is purchased before departure or on board.
