Report it. It's not like he swam away with your bags. I'm sure the ship security will investigate since you probably aren't the only victim.
Is it possible he left the ship before it set sail? Or are porters on ships doing their jobs after it sets sail? It seems dumb this guy would try to hide on a ship with stolen goods. OP saw his face and cruises last a few days or more so he can easily be caught.
I went on a cruise over the summer with Carnival. We dropped our bags at the pier and they went in a service entrance (deck 3 or 4) to be scanned, while passengers went up a ramp to deck 8. It seems entirely possible to me that a thief could show up and just look mildly official with a clipboard, tell people he'll handle their luggage, and then drive off with it. But hopefully it's still on-board and just got delivered to the wrong room!
Why do people think the guy will still be on the boat? It sounds obviously like the person offered to help her get her bags onto the boat, as she was getting onto the boat, and he will be long gone by this point. Also, you shouldn't know what a porter is. Unless someone with clear insignia that they work for the ship company talks to you, you shouldn't trust your stuff with anyone. If by some chance the guy had everything that one of their employees should have, which seems farfetch'd, then fyl. Report it to the ship company that someone is impersonating their employees
Smart guy. Never been on a cruise so is it possible that OP could buy some of the necessary essentials on the boat? It's not the best but its better than nothing.
