Default Question about boarding security on Oasis of the Seas at Port Everglades?

When you board the ship do passengers pass through "airport-like" x-ray machines? (Just curious ... if, and I say IF, someone was to have one of those wine-skin wine holders inside their shirt (like the old days at concerts!)- would she be detected?
Also, what about when you re-board after port calls?

Yes, there are metal detectors when you initially embark and everytime you reboard at a port-of-call. They don't seem to be as sensitive as those at an airport, so I don't know what will or won't set them off.

I set it off with my darn belt last week. If they see the bulge they will definitely pull you aside. The also do the random pat downs.

I don't know about RCL's on ship metal detectors as of yet, but I do know that when I was sailing on Costa in 09, the ones on the Atlantica were sensitive enough that a couple of memory cards in my back pocket set it off. Was really embarrassing because I had forgotten they were there and couldn't figure out what was going on. (Which cost me my small stash of rum in my cargo pocket, but c'est la vie)
