Actually, you are incorrect. The regulations of the port has nothing to do with it! The port does not control who does business with a particular cruise line. The ship is a privately owned vessel and only those companies who have a contract with the cruise line can board the ship for the purpose of delivering special need items to a passenger's cabin.

If a company does not have a contract with that cruise line, they will not be permitted to board the ship and can only supply the item/s to the passenger at the pier.

Cruise lines are not just to let any company walk onboard their ships without a contract and proper credentials. Not only a safety issue or a liability issue, but it's also a security issue.
