The ship is the same layout as the Carnival Spirit. I think there are quiet places onboard for sunning and for dining. You can go to the buffey area at night.
As far as I know you are allowed to bring a bottle of wine per person - and they can uncork it in the dining room - or you can drink it in your stateroom.
