Aren't you carrying a book, towel, sunscreen, etc... to the pool? Bring a small tote, and stick it in there...it'll be fine. You won't be that far away.
Or, wear the lanyard into the water, if you feel you must....it's plastic and waterproof!
I always stick mine in a book--it's my bookmark when I'm at the pool or beach.
On the ship, cash and credit cards should be locked in the safe...there's no reason to have to carry those things with you, as the ship is "cashless".
I wouldn't swim with it, I left my card in my pocket once, and the plastic lamination they print your name, folio number, etc. on started to peel off, and the folio number became unreadable (this was on princess last year and they typed your folio number into the computer, didn't scan the card). I had to get the card replaced, and since I had a coke sticker on it too, that was a bit of a pain to have replaced.
No worries leaving it with your towel, in your bag or sandals, etc.
