That isn't correct:

Land or sea crossings require a passport. Closed loop, ocean going voyages do not.

DHS: Publication of Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI) Land and Sea Final Rule, Questions and Answers

How will the final WHTI requirements affect passengers going on cruises?
U.S. citizens on closed-loop cruises (cruises that begin and end at the same port in the U.S.) will be able to enter or depart the country with proof of citizenship, such as a birth certificate and government-issued photo ID. A U.S. citizen under the age of 16 will be able to present either an original or a copy of his or her birth certificate, a Consular Report of Birth Abroad issued by DOS, or a Certificate of Naturalization issued by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.


Take care,
Mike
