Purse, clothing and ID
For clothes I love TravelSmith - nothing wrinkles and it so wash and wear... super comfortable.
For a purse/bag, I always use a lightweight one I can put over my head and carry across my body. REI makes some very practical, cute ones. Inboard I always carry a wristlet (small purse, about 3" or 4"x6" with a small strap to go over your wrist) with my ship card, room key and gum... What more do you need?!
Yes, keep your passport locked in the cabin safe and carry a photocopy when you go onshore..
