No, it's the other way around: on "normal" cruises, wine can be brought in carry-ons and subject to inspection; but it's not allowed in checked luggage. This is consistent with other cruise lines such as Carnival.
Royal Caribbean's website states the following, under FAQs:
Guests are not allowed to bring beer, hard liquor or non-alcoholic beverages onboard for consumption or any other use. Guests may bring personal wine and champagne onboard only in their carry-on luggage on boarding day, limited to two (2) 750 ml bottles per stateroom.
Then again, they say you can't bring soda onboard in carry-ons and yet, they generally allow it on "normal" cruises.
Carnival officially allows each guest to bring aboard up to a 12-pack of canned soda in carry-ons, which is pretty cool.
