5 days is not enough if you are willing to cover the route you mentioned. Base yourself in either Marrakesh and make a day trip to Essaouira Or travel via Rabat from Casablanca and have 2 days at least in Fes.

You can take a bus or a day tour from Marrakesh to Essaouira.

Easy by bus with Supratours. No rail link with Essaouira. Read the following article for info and times of departures:
