>> Day 1 Lucerne river cruise and general sightseeing.
Cruises are on the Vierwaldstättersee (Lake Luzern).
You will be there during the Spring timetable period. The timetable is here:

Make sure to read the explanation of symbols, especially "Days of Operation".
>> Day 2 - Mt. Titlis excursion (probably booked with Viator).
Is there some special reason why you want to do this with Viator? Do you have to book in advance?
Going to the Titlis from Luzern is very straightforward, simply involving a train from Luzern to Engelberg, a free shuttle bus between the railway station and the gondola valley station (or you can walk), then gondolas up to the top of Titlis.
There is no need to buy tickets in advance, and in fact it is not a good idea to buy a ticket until you are sure the top will not be in the clouds.
Before buying a ticket to go up, you can check visibility at the top via the webcam:
>> Train to Montreux - two nights (April 30 - May 2) ... Unsure of sightseeing in this area.
There is plenty to do in the area. The following links should assist:

- Lake Geneva boats info and timetable
(You will need the Spring timetable, which is not on the website yet.)
- Les Avants-Sonloup funicular
(train from Montreux to Les Avants, then funicular to Sonloup)
- Funicular Territet (Montreux) to Glion
- Les Pléiades (train from Vevey)
- Funicular railway Vevey-Mont-Pèlerin
You can use the Swiss Timetable to plan your trips.
>> One couple leaves on the fifth day (May 2) back to US from Geneva (the airlines changed their flights so we were able to get them out of Geneva - however Montreux is a bit of a distance from Geneva airport I think....)
There are direct connections from Montreux to Geneva Airport, which take 1 hour 10 or 1 hour 19, depending on the number of stops they make. The Swiss Timetable will reveal all.
