The cards will be tide to a credit card number (or to a persons cash deposit) not to a room number, - for use as the sign and sail card. The purser should be able to re-assign the card to a cabin door for use as a key.
When you fill out your boarding passes, there will be a page that asks for the credit card info per guest, as long as that gets filled out, I don't think that should be a problem. If you plan on changing which cabin each of your nine people are assigned to, then you may have to do that at boarding time.
