Cruise Camera - small and light

Hello,

i am going on a cruise and currently own the Canon 80 with a Tameron glass 18-400 f/3 but it is heavy. I am either looking a new smaller body camera with inter changeable lens or a lighter lens that  can be used as all in one. i have iphone so i can use that for videos and a go pro but for port stops want to carry a lighter load. Any advice opinions thoughts.

Thanks,

M

On the six or so river cruises I took, I have taken a Sony RX 100iv (compact, pocketable and great for walking around) and a Sony a6000 with a 16-70mm lens, but now that I have an R5/R6, I will be taking the R5 + RF 24-240 and maybe the RF 16mm.

I prefer the Canon 15-85 for a one lens solution.  It has better IQ and 15mm is far more useful than 18mm and the extra length on the long end is less likely to be missed.  I own both and this has been my experience.
