Is it possible to disembark at a port that isn't the final port? Say start in in NY and disembark at Port Canaveral, the first stop?
If so what are the repercussions, if any?

Wouldn't work according to this - http://reason.com/blog/2011/08/08/why-you-cant-take-a-cruise-fro - Cruise ships are foreign vessels so you must go to another country.

Theoretically, what would stop someone from taking off their bags (if its not too noticeable, that you are leaving). If someone comes back late from an excursion they leave without you, so what would be the difference...

I'm going to ask CBP and NCL about the matter.
Will report on my findings.

Please do. In your case you would probably need to go to another country first (eg Bahamas) and then you can def get off in Florida without continuing to Baltimore.

I spoke with a CBP supervisor down in Port Canaveral. He said unless the ship is registered in the US, then you would be in violation of the Jones Act if you weren't going to go to a different country first. The violation is a $300 fine charged to the cruise carrier and therefore would not effect your Trusted Travelers status. They cruise carrier may or may not charge you for the fine.
Theoretically, what would stop someone from taking off their bags (if its not too noticeable, that you are leaving).
Therefore I will ship my bags to my final destination with FedEx/UPS. I am not interested in  any sort of hassle.

You would still have to pay for the full cruise no? is it still worth it?

I am traveling with someone that cannot fly or be driven for long durations. So yes.

There are other cruises too for shorter durations and distances. Look up American cruise lines.

They don't go to Florida from Northeast. They go from BAL to Charleston, SC= 7 days then from Charleston to JAX= 7 days. Too long.

Right, cuz they stop in every tiny hicktown and village along the way. Seems like only one from NYC is a 7 day trip through the hudson river.
