Alaskan cruise questions

I have read nearly all the Alaskan info. threads and yet I still have a few questions. We are on the late July sailing, it'll be just DH and I (celebrating our 10th anniversary).

1.) While on board, do we need to keep anything with us at all times? I'm having a hard time deciphering the actual size of the ship and how long it will take us to walk around, etc. If it'll only be a 2-3 minute walk to get back to our room for stuff, I won't carry around a bag. Otherwise, I'll want to stash stuff and keep it handy.

2.) I know the ship is cash free and we'll pay for everything at the end of the cruise. Can we do this with Disney gift cards, credit card or cash?

3.) What is the pier like where we'll have to wait in line to board? It'll be late July so the weather shouldn't be too bad, but I'm wondering if we'll have to stand out in the wind while we wait.

4.) For excursions, I assume we can bring a backpack with stuff for the day and for space to remove layers if needed? For higher activity excursions, like zip-lining, is there a place to store items or will we have to carry everything with us at all times?

5.) What are the indoor temperatures like at the restaurants, etc.? I guess it can be chilly on deck but the temperature must be controlled inside.

6.) We have AT&T cell phones - will they work on the ship or at the ports?

7.) Do we pay for excursions when we book them online, or is our place held and we pay on the ship?

8.) Can we only make a reservation at Palo during our normally scheduled dining time?

Thanks so much for any and all help!
