Does passport needs to be valid for 6 months for a closed loop mexico cruise?

It seems mexico has no such requirement (google result), is it true? How about Princess or the port authority at San Pedro LA?

I want to renew the passport, but I worry not able to get passport soon enough as the cruise is approaching.

Mexico does actually have the requirement that a passport be valid six months or more if traveling by air or land, but for a cruise, no problem, you'll be fine. You can actually use a birth certificate on a closed loop cruise.
