Hard telling since you put it out the night before and pick it up when you get off the ship.
But if you are referring to anything you take off the ship with you, hasn't happen to me yet.

I hear they do check your luggage when you board. We plan to take on a few small bottles of soda in our luggage. Moderation is the key for things like this.

Ben, you may need to be more specific with your question. Upon embarkation, all carry-on's including handbags, camera cases, laptops, etc. would be screened at an "airport" style converyor belt as you proceed through the People scanner just like those used at airports. The Luggage is given to the porters on the pier and is placed in Huge Steel bins and hoisted onto the ship then distributed by ship's staff to your cabin. Upon disembarkation, as mentioned, all Luggage is put outside your stateroom the evening before and held in the ship's cargo hold. When customs enters the ship the next morning, the "sniffing" dogs do come through looking for contraband, etc. Then your luggage is off loaded into the terminal building where you will have to retrieve it, proceed through Customs (some ship's now do this proceedure on board ship) and off you go on your way home.

Bon Voyage

In San Juan all luggage (carry on and the stuff you have to give to the porters) is x-rayed before it gets on the ship. As long as you are not carrying an entire liqour store they will not care if you have a bottle in your luggage. They are looking for other things in that x-ray. But in San Juan there is also a liqour store after you go through the x-ray area so you can buy something there and just put it in your carry on with no problem as long as it fits into your bag.
