>> I am trying to get a seat reservation on the Gotthard Express. I think I finally have one on hold, but I wasn't asked to pick a seat.
If you book direct with the SBB, you can choose to have window or aisle seats, but if you have already paid for your booking, there would be no point booking again on the SBB site.
>> Do you actually get to pick a seat on the train
On the SBB site, you don't choose the actual seat, but you can choose window or aisle.
(Change the language at the top of the page if necessary).
>> or is the reservation just that and you take any seat you want when you get on the train?
On the Gotthard Panorama Express, a reservation is always for a specific seat. The carriage and seat number will be on your reservation.
>> Is there only one boat/train (Gotthard Express) to Lugano per day?
Yes, Tues to Sun - it doesn't run on Mondays. You can't reserve seats on the boat. The boat leaves Luzern at 11:12 and connects with the train at Flüelen at 14:10.
You can reserve seats on the train, which leaves Flüelen at 14:10, arriving Lugano 16:38. It is denoted by the letters EXT, and the reservation will cost you CHF 24. This cost is additional to the cost of a ticket or pass for the journey.
