There is one exception. If the entertainers are US Citizens, they can legally work on the pier or in the terminal.
But the bad news is if they are US Citizens, the cruise lines don't want to hire them - because among other issues, they will refuse to put in the extra time to work on the pier.
So it's obvious that the ship board workers weren't taking away work from Americans because no Americans have come to replace the ship board workers who were told to stay on ship.
