Europe / Mediterranean cruise - Am I missing anything?

I'm going on a cruise this summer with stops at Barcelona, Rome, Naples, Mykonos & other Greek Isles, and given that this is once in a lifetime, I want to make sure that I won't find myself for want of a different lens.

I'm planning on bringing:

  • D7000

  • 8mm Samyang

  • 18-105mm Nikkor

  • 35mm 1.8mm Nikkor

  • 70-300mm Nikkor (Not sure if I should bother taking this off the boat, thoughts?)

  • Tripod (CF Feisol Traveler - not sure how useful this will be given crowds, thoughts?)

I've been having a lot of fun with my Samyang lately, but the distortion can be a bit much depending on what I'm shooting. Because of this, I'm wondering if I should get a more standard UWA lens. I've been considering one of the following:

  • Tokina 11-16mm

  • Sigma 10-20mm (the price is much more palatable)

  • Sigma 8-16mm (& sell the Samyang?)

  • ...Something I haven't considered?

  • ...or make do with my current selection?

Thanks in advance!
