>> For the Golden Pass, I think we will only be going from Interlaken Ost to Luzern ... I shouldn't need a reservation, correct?
That train can get busy, especially in 2nd class. I don't know about June, but in September 2016 (which is after the peak of the tourist season) I found that train very busy every time I used it while in the area for around 2 weeks.
Without a reservation, I expect you would all get a seat, but possibly not window seats, not on the best side for views, and maybe not four together.
That train just shuttles back and forth between Luzern and Interlaken Ost, with about a 10-minute turnaround. Once you have decided which train you will take, if you check what time it will be arriving in Interlaken Ost from Luzern, and board it as soon as possible after it arrives, you might have a good chance of getting your preferred seats.
