Default Alaska, advice?

We will take 7 night cruise to Alaska and 3 days in Denali Park.
5dII, Canon 14-70MM, 50MM F1.8, Tamron 70-300MM with Kenko 1.4 DX.

Any advice?
Do I have to bring 50MM?

I'm assuming you mean 17-40mm.....

I'd say you'll be covered, Alaska is amazing, you'll defiantly want wide and you'll defiantly want long.

You might want to consider a Macro lens as the wildflowers are awesome this time of year.

You may want to bring along the 50 f/1.8 for shots inside the ship. The lens is small and light, so it shouldn't add much to your bag. I own a 40mm f/2.8 pancake for just such instances.

Raincoat for your equipment as well as yourself. The 70-300mm could be a little short on a 5D Mk II.
1D Mark IV, 5D Mark III, 7D, 1.4X MkIII, 2X MkIII, 17-40mm L, 70-200mm f2.8 IS Mk II L, 100mm macro, 500mm f4 IS L, 24-105mm f4 L, 580 EX II, 550EX
