Default hole in passport

Dumb question of the day...
In April as I was departing San Juan, the TSA agent "accidentally" punched a hole in my passport. I read online all about the evils of mutilated passports and got worried, so I go to the local post office. The guy there told me it looked OK since no information or the photo was affected. Still worried I call the passport office and was told the same thing and was given a number to call just in case I had any troubles. The passport center said "mutilated" implies willingly altering the passport such as numbers, dates, or photos and that mine was classified as normal wear and tear. Therefore I need not a new one for the time being.
I have two cruises booked for next still I worry about problems. Has anyone ever been denied boarding due to such a trivial matter, or is this simply cruise anxiety on my part?
