Catch the old-town charm of Lucerne and its expansive lake views

The scenic views of an old Swiss town, a majestic lake, and the mighty Swiss Alps – all packed into one breezy, comfy cruise. This is exactly what you see as you board the MS Saphir yacht at Lake Lucerne. Cruising along the crystal-clear waters of the lake, the yacht cuts a sleek path through the turquoise waters, its expansive windows offering breathtaking views in all directions. Lush green forests climb the mountainsides, dotted with charming Swiss chalets, while a multilingual audio guide accompanies you as a virtual storyteller on this 1-hour cruise. The yacht’s luxurious, open-air top deck lets you catch some rays and the aqua terrace gives the chill cruise vibes as you spot Lucerne's landmarks.

Swiss Alps and architecture straight out of a picturebook

Further into your cruise, look out for the Meggenhorn Castle perched on a rocky cliff and the iconic Chapel Bridge, a colorful 14th-century monument adorned with paintings. The free Wi-Fi aboard the yacht keeps you connected, while the audio guide on an app spills the tea on everything you see. You’ll even see the luxurious Bürgenstock Resort, tucked amidst emerald green hills. But the real stars of the show are the mountains Rigi, nicknamed the Queen of the Mountains, and Mt. Pilatus, shrouded in tales of fire-breathing dragons! While you’re taking in the charm of Lucerne, if you’re feeling peckish, the yacht bar has you covered with drinks and snacks to fuel your fun.
