I'd sell the Canon 24-105mm f/4

And then buy these:
Canon 8-15mm f/4L
Canon 16-35mm f/2.8L II
Canon 50mm f/1.8
(light, small, cheap, and great IQ. It also covers the gap from 35mm to 70mm and gives you a very low light option too that's not too long.)
Canon 70-200mm f/4L IS (the 70-200mm f/2.8L MkII is really nice but it's heavy and expensive. The f/4L IS is very close in IQ to the MkII and is much lighter, cheaper, and easier to lug around. I'd spend my real cash on wider & faster lenses for landscapes, vistas, on-board shoots, and walk-arounds. I'd bet the 16-35mm f/2.8L II would be on your 5D3 70%+ of the time. Do you really want $2k worth of lens sitting in your bag 60-70% of the time? :) )

This will cover virtually every shooting situation you come across.

I think you need a 1.4x or 2x extender instead of the 85, and you need a 430 or 580 flash for sure.

16-35 or 17-40
24-105
100-400

That covers almost every focal length you should need for your trip. Maybe bring a fast prime.
