I asked the same question of C&M when I cruised with them recently and was told that if the ship cruises outside the EU then they need to be retained to complete certain immigration documentation for the authorities. I was also required to hand in my passport on both Crystal and Azamara when visiting Istanbul.

I find it strange that some lines like Fred Olsen require this but others just require you to produce them as required. We were very unhappy that FO kept them for the duration of our cruise and we don't think they had the right to do so. We accepted it only as we didn't want to cause a fuss.
