RCL has a wine package, which basically allows you to "pre-purchase" so many wines throughout the duration of your cruise. The wine packages are normally sold within the dining room. Be careful though, once you "buy the package" you own those bottles, even if you don't finish them by the end of the trip - no refunds. You can always ask them to bring to your cabin so you can enjoy them outside the dinning room. As an example, on my last cruise, I met a young lady who had two bottles still in her package by the last day of the cruise; they simiple gave her both bottles and she drank them by the pool and elsewhere onboard.
One other addition to what you have posted, if you purchase wine (or are gifted wine by friends or a TA) and have it delivered to your cabin, and you want to take it to the dining room, be aware that you will likely be charged a corkage fee (I believe it is $12) to do that. It is one of Royal Caribbean's bizzare rules that they will charge a corkage fee on wine purchased from them if it isn't delivered to the dining room.
