The reason is the Passengers Services Act. Cruise ships can not embark and return to a US port without a stop in a "distant" port".

thanks, kuki. that is what reason led me to think was the case. so, i'm not surprised, though it would be interesting to know the logic behind it. i'm sure it must be obvious to lots of people -- just not to me. thanks again.
