Lake Geneva is huge, and when a severe storm blows up it is very like being at sea. Having pre-booked tickets, we felt obliged to brave the elements and make the evening cruise from Vevey on the Italie (we would not be around for the next one). Storms can arrive very quickly - we had bought the tickets in beautiful sunshine only a few hours earlier. The cruise was spectacular, to say the least. Repeated lightning flashes illuminated the surrounding mountains, torrential rain prevented any ventures out onto the open decks, and the ship lurched around way beyond anything that I have experienced on a lake. Storm beacons flashed wildly ever kilometre or so around the lake shore - the flashing rate indicates the severity of the expected weather. The beacons are there to tell small boats to head for shore, and we certainly did not see another craft on the lake throughout the cruise. Disembarking was made extremely difficult due to the movement of Italie up and down against the pier. A memorable first journey on this holiday.
