Default Bringing your own wine -dining room question

I'm thinking about bringing our own bottles of wine - probably 2 of them - and then bringin them to the dining room. I know that there is $10 cork fee/bottle that is charged (sometimes). My question: For those of you who have brought more than one bottle of wine, did you bring both to the dining room on the same night or bring the 2nd when you fnished the first?

if you think that you are going to go thru 2 bottles of wine at one dinner seating by all means, bring both bottles with you. If you are planning on drinking your wine on different nights, then just bring one bottle each night and keep the other one in your stateroom.

Also, we took a bottle of our own wine each night and our waiters never charged us a corkage fee....and yes, we tipped them extra at the end of the week.

We were on rccl last summer and enjoyed our usual (reasonable) vine from home in the dining room. Our waiter open, iced and served it to us. AThey never charged the corking fee. We did give him a little extra tip at the end. I would highly recommend bringing your own.
