What happens to luggage when it's checked in?

Just finished my FEs (cruising on Sat) and i am trying to decide whether to
pack my FE gifts in my carry on bags or in checked
in luggage. The problem is they contain chocolate so i dont
want it to melt before it gets to us. What do you think?

In August (guessing by your sig), I'd totally carry them on. Even 15-20 min out in the heat, especially if your suitcase is dark-colored, they'd be a mess.

I'm not positive, but what I think happens is that they stack the luggage into tall metal cart things and then when they're full, they get moved over to where they're then loaded onto the ship. I could be wrong. But I'd say it's probably a safe bet they're not under air conditioning the entire time.
