Default HAL Liquor Policy?

Does anyone know Holland America's official bringing-liquor-on-board policy? For instance, if we want to have a bottle for drinks in our room, do we need to 'smuggle' it aboard like with some other lines? Or does HAL have no restrictions on bringing your own? (I mean from the beginning of the cruise, not duty-free purchases.)
Thanks,
Larry

Last fall we took aboard the Noordam a box with 4 bottles of wine at Rome, and some more at Santorini - all no problem for drinking in our cabin.Larry wrote:

HAL has no problem with passengers bringing liquor aboard for use in their cabins. No need to smuggle. Your steward will get you any glasses and mixers etc. that you may desire.

You can always buy in the duty free shop on board on a sign and carry basis.

If you bring a bottle of wine into the dining room that you did not purchase onboard the ship, there will be a 'corkage' charge of $10.

In-room use of any liquor brought onboard is free of charge. Ask your room steward for fresh orange juice and grapefruit juice each day to 'mix' with your imported vodka. Ice is always available for your room.

So what if you do not use their services to uncork the bottle? Still the charge?

Default Re: corkage fee

We were aboard the RVI in December and brought our own bottle to dinner several times -- each time the wine steward chilled it for us, opened it, served us and we were NOT charged any corkage fee.
