I said this five years ago, and Ill say it today.. everyone who goes to places they've never seen before should own a super zoom. The 18-270 Tamron piezo drive is the one to get. Its quiet and will cover the range you will ever need on that cruise. You wont have to take another lens with you, you wont have to change lenses on the fly. That lens will get you everything you need. Its a one time purchase and it will last you forever. Ive turned many people on to that lens and it remains on their camera 90- % of the time. its a perfect go away lens... you are not looking for absolute photographic perfection... But many of the shots you will get with this lens will simple blow you away. I use to take 6 or 7 lenses with me on a trip, I know take only two. my Tamron super zoom and my 70-200 2.8 SSM G. and I use the Tamron 95 % of the time.
