Hej ! Edinburgh2,
Right off the top, what kind of pass are you planing to use ?
I think you may be rushing a bit much in at least one stage of your proposed itinerary. More particularly, I think you will be a bit rushed on Days 5 and 6 and therefore wonder what you actually plan to do in St. Moritz. If your main objective is to soak in the scenery along the train segments, then go for it.
I like Lucas' idea for going via St. Gallen on Day 6, but again that adds to travel time. How early are you prepared to leave St. Moritz in the AM ?
I would consider spending one more night in Lucerne (3 instead of 2) and one less night (3 instead of 4) in Interlaken (or somewhere up one of the valleys, either Grindelwald or Lauterbrunnen, which I prefer). As things stand now, you aren't giving yourself much time in the Lucerne area, especially since Day 6 could be a long travel day. I hope you can fit in a ride on one of the boats that go out from Lucerne (the docks are right there in front of the train station).
You aren't giving yourself much time along Lake Geneva, which is too bad. Any place along there is great for an overnight, including, as Lucas has stated, Montreux.
By the way, on the day you take the train from Geneva to Zermatt, sit on the right side of the train to get the most amazing views all along the Léman (Lake Geneva). Maybe the train won't be too crowded and so you can go back and forth once you hit the Rhone valley.
You are not fitting any of the Italian part of Switzerland (Ticino) nor much of the French part (Romandie) into your itinerary. I hope you will get to see more of these areas in your next visit.
