Eurail Pass Benefits Switzerland

Hi, I note from the Eurail website that if yopu have a pass that is valid in Switzerland you get free travel on many of the lake boat services. Whilst this sounds great does anybody know: 1. does this count as a travel day on your pass if you only use it on a boat cruise? 2. is it really free ie no reservation fees and do you just show your pass when you get on the boat? Thanks Rodney

Rodney, You might find it helpful to have a look at the Railpasses section on this website (click the tab at the top of this page). There's an excellent comparison chart there. You can also download the free PDF Rail Guide (provided it's available in your area). Look for the link in the lower right corner. Cheers!
