paddle steamships in Switzerland

We are planning a trip to Switzerland in May, my husband is a steam engine person and I am looking for guidance and/or information on the steamships on Lake Lucerne and other lakes in Switzerland.

From a Google search:

Several years ago, we took a steamboat on Lake Lucerne from Lucerne to Fluelen where we caught a train, had a nice lunch aboard the boat. It was a memorable day.

I lived in Switzerland for a year in the 70s, vaguely remember some vintage paddle steamboats on Lake Geneva. Found this info:

I remember riding on a paddle steamship on Lake Brienz; must have been the Lötschberg. Here's a link: http://www.myswitzerland.com/en-us/lake-brienz.html.
