>> Does Saphir Panoramic Cruise with swiss pass @ CHF 17 - worth spending
That comes down to personal preference and available time really.
I have read their brochure, and it seems to me that this experience is more about experiencing the boat itself - a classy motor yacht, with bar. There is less focus on experiencing a substantial stretch of the lake as a scenic destination, because the cruise route is very limited (see attached map with a red circle showing the area of the lake to which the cruise is confined). The boat doesn't call in to any docks during the cruise, and doesn't go into the most scenic parts of the lake.
If your time is very limited, you like the idea of cruising for an hour on a motor yacht, and don't mind the extra cost, it's probably a good choice.
If you wanted to see more of the lake than the limited cruise path of the Saphir allows, I would get one of the normal boats - which have the advantage of being free with the Swiss Travel Pass. These cruises are longer, but that also means of course that you need to have enough time to do them.
