Filming on a cruise ship (in dock) - general advice

ANy general advice for filming on a cruise ship for a small ditty on a shopping channel? I've mostly done nightclubs/event videos before - so this is fairly new territory and I would say its my biggest job yet as being a freelance Camera / editor - the most corporate job i've gained thus far.

Should I wear a high-vis jacket? Should I dress uber smart (black suit) or just casual suit jacket, shirt, no tie, dark jeans / trousers?

Sony EX3 - have had a rain cover delivered - going to use a Tripod for some PTCs - presenter wearing a Sen. Wireless lapel mic, I also have a Rode NTG2 (+ 3m XLR cable) and Shure SM58 Vocal mic (which can use the Sen. Plug on transmitter - great sound for loud environments / music in BG).

Shots to get - what do you do to prepare? Any formulas? Plan of attack? I think perhaps, film the presenter walking around talking about the facilities etc (handheld / shoulder) then using tripod, get some wides / pan downs etc.. or use if the presenter is sat down / stood against a bar etc...

Also, my insurance is due now - any recommendations within the UK?
