Well, you don't need any cash, everything on the ship is paid using your on-bard ship ID/ room key which you will receive when checking in. You settle your bill on the last day either using cash or just having the charges applied to your credit card. That includes ANYTHING you would buy on the ship. As to an actual number, I would say you will need somewhere between $100 and $3000 depending on how much you drink.
The only place you'd need cash is if you get off the boat in Mexico so you can buy tequila, sombreros and hookers if you are so inclined..
Other than that just pack like you are taking a beach vacation and for the sake of your fellow cruisers don't forget the toothpaste and deodorant.
