The spectacular surroundings
While Muslim tourists will not find a prayer room aboard the cruise boat they might be able to find a secluded area aboard the boat to offer their prayers. They will also be able to use the facilities provided at the mosques and prayer rooms in the city of Lucerne.
Although most of the cruise routes include a meal served on board the boat, these meals are unlikely to be Halal. If the meal served includes a vegetarian or seafood dish, Muslim tourists might be able consume it, after ensuring the dish does not contain any non-Halal ingredients. However, tourists who are rather specific about their requirement to dine at a Halal outlet, the city of Lucerne does house a number of restaurants that serves Halal cuisine.
