Viking Rhine River Cruise -- buy and bring local wine onto ship?

We're going to be on a river cruise next September, and lots of little questions have been coming to mind. If we buy local wines, will we be able to bring them onto the ship and drink them at dinner, or on the observation deck while relaxing, etc?
On the last day, how early can we schedule an airport departure? I'm planning to ask our travel agent, but thought I would try here -- as I think of the questions. Thanks for any insights!

We were on a Viking cruise this year, and they encouraged us to buy local wines. They served them at dinner. The wines were well cared for and cheerfully served. The included wines that they served with dinner were generally satisfactory but not so good that were discouraged from experimenting.
Our last day was at a hotel in Bucharest and our flight was at 7AM. They provided a "box" breakfast, and it worked out well. On ocean cruises, disembarkation is usually AM and airline scheduling is tricky. Check.

We are also going on a Viking Rhine River Cruise on Sept 15th out of Amsterdam. We found out there is not a corkage fee either so you might want to bring a cork screw for your room.
