Most of the cruises allow you to bring some wine or other alcohol aboard that you can have in the cabin. For Princess and Celebrity, I think the maximum for wine is 2 bottles. This is something we didn't know when we first started cruising. You can save a lot of money over wine you would buy on the ship!
OP has decided on NCL, which allows unlimited bottles of wine to be brought onboard provided you pay a $15 per 750-ml bottle corkage fee. The wine can be consumed anywhere on the ship including the dining rooms, specialty restaurants, bars/lounges AND you cabin/balcony.
