Welcome to the forums!

What you describe is not possible. This is due to Department of Homeland security regulations, not the cruise lines. Among other regulations, the cruise lines must submit the passenger manifests to DHS three days (I believe) prior to the cruise departure. So -- advance reservations are required.
Happy cruising!
