What lens for Honeymoon Full Frame (portraits/environmental)

Hi All

We are going on a Honeymoon to Tahiti and I am unsure what lens will be the best suited for a full frame camera. I will be taking the below lenses and weight is a major consideration as the inter island flights carry on is 5kg 11lb

8-15 Fisheye (for underwater photography)

24mm  (For landscape and underwater photography)

100-400 for Birds and sharks (may have to check this lens in)

What I think would be useful would be a portrait lens somewhere in the middle. I don't want tight head shots but something that will show some of the gorgeous surroundings as well.

Not sure which would suit best

50MM F1.2 or the 85MM F1.2/1.4

Would anyone like to weigh in with their experience/thoughts and yes I know such terrible first world problems.
