Yes the U.S. Passport Card is sufficient for sailing.
Note: If you miss your ship at its scheduled U.S. departure port and need to travel outside the U.S. to meet your ship, or should you unexpectedly need to depart the ship from a foreign port prior to the end of sailing, a passport would be required to leave or re-enter the U.S. by air. To that end, Norwegian Cruise Line strongly recommends all guests to obtain a passport for their voyage on any Norwegian Cruise Line vessel.
You don't need a passport for the Bahamas, only government issued ID -- but the Passport card specifically states on the back that it is "Valid only for international land and SEA travel between United States, Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, and BERMUDA." (right off the back of my card). So your passport card should suffice.
