Hi kfred, thanks for your compliments!

I think your itinerary looks fine. It's varied and well-paced. Just mind to make some back-up plans such as boat rides and city/museum visits in case weather isn't good. The Swiss Travel Pass is the perfect solution to be flexible and adapt your plans if necessary, so no worries there. Please see the pages below for further suggestions around Lucerne and in the Bernese Oberland:

As for day 3: the default route gets you to Interlaken via Brünig, Meiringen and Brienz. It's part of the Golden Pass ride and very scenic. You'll find details in the timetable. Day 6: there are plenty of options in the Wengen area. If skies are clear consider Männlichen (with the hike to Kleine Scheidegg if you like) or Schilthorn, combined with the Grütschalp-Mürren hike.
