From Paris, the border town would be Basel if you indeed head to Luzern (for tickets Paris to Basel see here). There are no Panoramic trains on this route. The panoramic trains in Switzerland are noted here. 2 of these trains start in Luzern and go further in Switzerland: The Golden Pass route goes to Montreux and the Gotthard Panoramic Express goes to Lugano.
You could do either of these trains the day after your arrival in Luzern (are you staying there for several days?)
Alternatively, if you don't have enough time for the above plan, you could train from Paris to Geneva and then a regular train to Montreux and from there take the Golden Pass from there to Luzern - although this is a long day indeed!
Use the Swiss railways timetable here to help plan your train trips.
As for scenic boat rides, I think all are great, but perhaps Luzern is the lake cruise to choose if I had to pick just one.
