Are you suggesting he take a cruise that starts in Miami but
intentionally miss the ship and pick it up at the first port? I doubt
that will work either since they will still have to clear him with the
TSA and I would not expect them to take him later on if TSA says no.
I think this person's only choice is a cruise that does not hit any US
ports. BTW, what exactly is the problem? Is it even something that the
TSA would have on their radar or is it a situation where there are
non-TSA related legal issues?

Sorry, don't know what the TSA is. Perhaps we can find out from them
if he would have an issue?

The authority that screens passengers as they (re)enter the US and
presumably provide the cruise lines with a "do not board" list after
reviewing the passenger manifest.

I think you can leave early as my dtr. and her husband left Ft.
Lauderdale, went thru Panama Canal and got off in San Diego as they
wanted to spend a few days there. The ship went on to Seattle.
Recently I was on the Oasis of the Seas and a number of people got on in
St. Thomas which was the first port of call.
Certainly it has to be booked in advance. Check with your travel agent
or the cruiseline directly.

The deep ocean stop allows for the drop of in San Diego, but to allow
a second drop off in Seattle requires more than a trip to Vancouver
Island on Encinada, thus my speculation that the San diego Northward
journey was actually a trip to Canada with a bus transfer to Seattle
to explain how they could come back from Seattle without getting off
the ship there.
