PLEASE check with the operator nearer the time, as it is often necessary to make late changes,   especially to the vessel operating a particular sailing
Note: Additional sailings are operated throughout the year by motor vessels
 
Fleet disposition All paddle steamers normally berth overnight at Luzern
Very occasionally one outstables at Flüelen or Brunnen in connection with special evening cruises
  PS Unterwalden is now the only paddle steamer still able to lower her navigation bridge, masts and funnel to sail under the Acheregg road and railway bridge at Stansstad and therefore normally operates sailings 65-66 to and from Alpnachstad from late-May to early-September
