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?

Hi jmaddox1,

From what I recall there is no substantial food on the boat outside the restaurant (assuming you are avoiding that). I would grab some sandwiches etc. at the local Migros or Coop grocery stores before boarding.

Thank you Lucas. Can't decide what we will do yet. Have table reservations but still undecided.

I see you are familiar with the Vierwaldstättersee/Lake Lucerne boat site, so have you seen the gastronomy page, which has downloadable menus?

www.lakelucerne.ch/en/ gastronomy/

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.
