Compare this to running, where someone new to the activity will be sweating within a few minutes (depending on general fitness levels, of course).
If weight loss is the goal of cardio, then it is imperative to work up a sweat. That's not to knock swimming as a great low impact workout, though (which, as I said, is great for toning).
