entering the US

we must jump through when we want to reenter.
There has to be a thousand of you that know the answer to this.

when you enter the us, you must call the customs within 24hrs, Then visit imigration and have your passports stamped. If you dont report whether you have a sticker or not. There are homeland security laws that if you dont report they can impound your boat, or set a fee to pay or go to jail. dont laught we made the mistake of taking our time and almost faced a fine and jail!
Some places are easier to check in than others, you find out from other cruisers. We had our experience in Miami. while its a hassle and time consuming it is necessary for home land security to do their job,

Going back to the OP's question again, I believe what you experienced was U.S. Customs, plus the cruise line's own procedure. On a cruise with my family a year or so ago, the cruise line made a big production out of verifying passport & ID before getting aboard the liner... but as I noticed later, that was because for all subsequent stops, going ashore and returning in foreign ports was handled by the cruise ship ID only. In essence the cruise ship is acting as a customs agent for the country being visited.
