The Swiss pass would cover your boat trips – cruise and boat ride are the same thing!
If you catch the 11.40 boat from Thun, it arrives in Interlaken West at 13.49. The train leaves I.West at 13.53, arriving at Interlaken Ost at 13.57 and the boat for Brienz leaves at 14.07. It is doable but tight and this is another reason for choosing Swiss Pass as you won’t need to queue for train ticket in Interlaken.
I don’t know anything about Super Saver tickets – we always use Swiss Pass as it is most convenient for us (can board transport without having to queue for tickets except when using the discounted travel on cable cars etc.) and involves big savings over point-to –point tickets.
I found the following information on the ssb website for the 19.09 train from Zurich to Milan which is why I advised to check before you travel.
You take the EuroCity from Zürich HB departing track 6 to Milano Centrale.
Your journey starts at Zürich HB on 16.04.13 at 19:09, you arrive at Milano Centrale is at 22:50.
Please note: Tilting train
Summary The total journey time is: 3:41 This connection runs daily. The number of changes is: 0
EC 25 (Zürich HB - Milano Centrale) Travel advice: (EC 25) Passengers travelling to Zug, Arth-Goldau, Bellinzona, Locarno (changing in Bellinzona) and Lugano are advised to take the ICN 10025 departing from Zurich HB at 19:01.[br]
Passengers travelling to Italy should note that connections at Milano Centrale cannot be guaranteed. Please allow enough time to change trains.
However it looks as though for your trip they are warning only that the train may not run exactly to schedule. If you don’t need to connect to another train in Milan, there should be no problem. You do need to reserve your trip in advance.
Hope I haven’t confused you!
