I went across the lake from Lausanne to Evian. Recommend it - boats generally run every 30 minutes back and forth across the lake. I saw the historic paddle boat was pretty full and lots of people taking tickets for the dinner cruise too.

You have to take a cruise on Lac Léman if at all possible. The scenery is spectacular and the boats are charming. We did the Montreux to Lausanne route on a fine day and it was just delightful. Very courteous crew add to the pleasure.
