Yes, it's true, but it's actually the PVSA, the Jones Act pertains to cargo. In a nut shell, it's illegal to start and end a cruise in two different US ports without hitting a Foreign Distant port. Can you post the three cruises you're looking at...we might be able to come up with some legal alternatives for you.
