Most ships work on a cashless system where your credit card details are taken and your then issued with a swipe card for each transaction you make on board. If you dont have a credit card then usually they will take pounds/dollars/euros (exchange rate can be very poor) at the start of your trip and you are then capped on how much can be spent.

On a trip on Celebration in September the only thing I needed real money for was the casino and even there you can go to the cash desk for your chips and get them added to your account. I put my wallet, passport etc in the safe and forgot about them for the week. You will need some money for on shore cash purchases.
