I've heard that because the water is treated (desalination of ocean water) vs. booze and food has lots of salt. Not sure really what the culprit is, but I had my worst case of feet/ankle swelling on our last cruise in February.

In addition to drinking lots of water and walking, I found doing laps in the pool and going in the jacuzzi was helpful. Also, a lounge chair is better than having your legs hanging down in an upright chair.
