Well, we'd probably trade a storage cabinet for the dishwasher but absolutely would go the paper plate route over dishes if water was critical. And if we didn't have a dishwasher, we'd always go with paper plates. Mark that one up to laziness more than water conservation.

With paper plates ,dishwasher space will probably be used for a trash compactor.

Or at least a shredder if you are going to deep 6 your paper trash.

To us too it's the accumulation of more trash. Yes, dishes to wash, but we don't use paper plates at home, so not on the boat.
I agree. We use 'retired' heat resistant glass crockery from home on the boat. The less non-re-useable stuff on the boat to have to dispose of the better, over and above the other issues BandB mentioned above.
