It sounds like worst case scenario you just have them confiscated, so no real reason not to try it?
Your bags get scanned whether you check them or carry on.
For a cruise, only a percentage of checked luggage is scanned or x-rayed. There's no way they could scan them all in time. Figure 3,000+ passengers and an average of one bag apiece (some have none, some have two or even three since there's no limit) ....there ain't no way.
So, it's a random chance whether your checked bag gets scanned or not. (I think all carry-on luggage goes through the TSA checkpoint x-ray, though.)
