One thing to consider about the credit card is that a hold is put on the credit card unless you plunk down cash. I got a second credit card just for the cruise for shopping, tours in port, etc.
Best thing I took was the collapsible cooler! Steward filled it up every morning so I always had cold bottled water on hand.
