Danube Travel between Bratislava and Vienna

I'd like to go between Bratislava and Vienna via the Danube. I've found two companies. The Twin City Liner doesn't carry luggage and the LOD doesn't operate on Thursdays in September (9/19/19). Does anyone know of an alternate vendor? Thanks!

They weren't running when we were there. Had to ride the bus 39 miles into Vienna.
Bratislava is so close, but so far from Vienna in every way. Didn't hear a word of German spoken there in 3 days.

The Twin City Liner's General Conditions describes what each passenger can bring.

2 a) Every passenger can bring on board items intended for their own use during the journey (where necessary packaged appropriately), unless their carriage contravenes paragraph 1. Due to the particular character of the ship, the size of baggage is limited to hand baggage size used in air travel (55 x 40 x 23 cm; max. 8kg).

2 b) The passenger can at their own risk bring easily accommodated luggage items on board (small hand luggage), as long as it does not occupy another seat or impede freedom of movement on the ship.

3 c) Pre-booking is required to take bicycles on board, as the space is limited to 12 bicycles.

In August 2018 I traveled by catamaran from Bratislava to Vienna with my 22/inch rolling suitcase. No problem.

Beth, Do you know the name of the catamaran company? That sounds like a wonderful way to travel between the two cities. I'm hoping to go in 2021.
