Assuming they did have passports, then the law they broke was Jamaica law requiring them to "check in" with local authorities.

Frankly, I don't see why Jamaica would object to people getting off a cruise and staying a few days - as long as they knew about them.
Actually you're right. Not sure what I was thinking, but it stuck in my head and I didn't think about it again until now.
