As rockoyster has mentioned, none of the classic panoramic routes are found between Luzern and Zürich.
Here is a map that will show you where the panoramic routes are. The Wilhelm Tell Express is now called the Gotthard Panorama Express.

If you have the time, I would highly recommend the Glacier Express route mentioned by rockoyster. I have attached a map showing that route.
Should you not have enough time to do that, my favourite route would be via Arth-Goldau. The highlight of that trip for me is the stretch along the Zugersee (Lake Zug). The train travels high along a hillside on the eastern side of the Zugersee, and you have scenic views down to to the lake, lakeside villages, and the mountains (including the Rigi) on the other side of the lake. Sit on the left. I have attached a map of this route too, which takes less than an hour-and-a-half. To get this route in the timetable, use "Via Arth-Goldau" in your timetable search.
