That's not quite accurate. You can bring on one bottle of wine per person. If you want it served to you in the dining room there's a corkage fee. If you drink it in your cabin there's no fee.

I don't read where you can take the wine to your Cabin, has to be checked in & drunk only in the Dinning room or Supper Club....
Now some will try to sneak the hootch in their luggage as always.....
Below is the Quote from Carnival....
Guests are prohibited from bringing alcoholic beverages onboard. However, guests (21 years and older only) may bring one bottle of wine or champagne per person on board only during embarkation at the beginning of the cruise. A $10 corkage fee per bottle will be charged should you wish to consume this wine in the dining room or a $14 corkage fee per bottle in the Supper Club. Guests may bring a small quantity of non-alcoholic beverages.
I think the question could arise from their use of the words underlined above..."should you choose". It does not address if you "should choose NOT to consume the wine in the dinner venues.

They sell sample (airline) size bottles of rum, etc in the duty free shop onboard and allow you to take that with you at time of purchase without a requirement of where you may consume it. This is not the case if you buy anything larger than the samples.

PS I fixed the spelling Kuki made from wind to wine. I just couldn't imagine anyone opening a bottle of "wind" in the dining room !!! I hate when I have a case of the "winds" !!!
