1 gig card will definately not be big enough if your intending to leave them on there to take home. I ended up shooting over 12 gig on the cruise. I took my laptop, which has a dvd burner and moved the pictures from the camera over to the laptop and also burned them to dvd for safety.
I ended up shooting about 500 pictures. I overheard one person say that he took over 6500! Not sure when he had time to sleep and such. You can only take so many pictures of icebergs, penguins and such!
There are devices that contain little hard drives that you can plug your memory card into and download the pictures to.
Hope this helps.
I personally shoot full frame and each picture takes a big chunk of space. I use 64gb flash drives on my cameras and have extras of similar size to ensure that I have enough space. I usually take approximately 1500 to 2000 pictures on a week vacation.
