Anyone recommend good wine carriers?

We sail RCL and are allowed to bring 2 bottles 750ml on-board on embarkation day. Anyone have a recommended carrier for the luggage? Thanks.

Does RCL charge for bringing wine on board?

Most cruise lines will charge a corkage fee, either for personal wine poured in the MDR, or in some cases, even for personal wine only poured in the stateroom.

I don't know if this information is still correct for RCL, given the date of the post, but it appears that RCL charges a $15 corkage fee for bottles consumed in "public spaces":

"What is the corking fee?

Since June 2017, guests who consume their personal wine and champagne in public areas, will incur a $15 corkage fee per bottle. The corkage fee only applies to personal bottles brought onboard on embarkation day.

This means, guests bring their wine to any specialty restaurant, main dining room or bar to have it opened for them will be charged the $15 corkage fee."
