The answer is that it is against the Passenger Vessel Services Act for a foreign company (a non US cruise ship) to transport passengers between two US ports. It conflicts with US companies also offering the same service (though none exist, it is a universal transportation law originally set up to apply to railroads).

The fine is $300 per person, which the cruise line allowed to charge to your account if you happen to just disappear.
