Some comments about Day 5:
Selecting one day, and only one day, for Jungfraujoch , is a potential problem.
If the skies are cloudy up there, you will not want to spend your money to see the inside of a cloud.
Weather changes rapidly in the region: it would be better to be there for a couple of days, which will improve your chances of good weather a lot. If things work out well, you can move on to Zermatt or Montreux afterward, or skip them.
May is still pretty much Winter as far as trails are concerned near the Jungfrau. At those high altitudes, there is still a lot of snow and ice, which can block the higher hiking trails. Train will run.
Lower elevations - Luzern, for example, will be well into Spring by then.
I agree with Lucas about the Rhine Falls. Even with the Spring runoff from snow melt, they are wide, powerful, and not very tall. I went there once. Won't go back. The are plenty of other waterfalls around the world to see. This one did not contribute to my feeling of seeing something Swiss.
Many people like it; but, from my perspective as US citizen who has seen Niagara Falls, it was pleasant...nothing more.
You may feel differently.
