Hello girishanmukh, and welcome! I think a Swiss Card
or a 3 or 4 day Swiss Saver Flexi Pass
(using free travel days for day 1, day 3, maybe day 4, and day 5) would be the cheapest solution. You'd have to make some calculations
to find out for sure which pass is best. Purchase options can be found on both pages I linked to, in the upper right corner under the header 'Where to buy your...'. Just fill out you country and some other details to have all relevant options displayed.
There's no ongoing cruise from Interlaken to Lucerne. Part of the trip can be made by boat over lake Brienz. In Brienz, you should switch to a train that will get you to Lucerne. Once you're in Lucerne, you can make further boat rides over lake Lucerne. The timetable
and the website of lake Brienz's boat company
will help you out here. By the way, this trip doesn't have to be booked in advance.
You do have to arrange for seat reservations
for the Golden Pass train ride between Montreux and Interlaken.
Just a thought on your itinerary: if you don't necessarily have to get back to Geneva on day 5 or 6, it would be easier to head for Paris straight from Lucerne. You can get to Zurich, which is rather close to Lucerne, and get on the ongoing train to Paris from there. That would allow you to spend an extra day in Lucerne and reduce traveling times.
