Hello,

boat is more a tourist attraction than a real transport option. You should consider going by train - it is cheaper and more comfortable.

Moreover, the boats does not sail in this time of the year.

Hi Della,

that is a nice question :) A suppose there is a bar inside a boat where you can buy some kind of alcohol. However, it will be quite expensive.

Hello,

there should be no problem with baggage, however, train would be probably more comfortable.
