It depends on what time the ship would be departing the port. Guests would be required to be back onboard at least 1 hour to the departure.

The hours will be posted in your Freestyle Daily newsletter, there will be announcements made, and also there will be signage as you disembark the ship what time you need to be back on board.

In case of Bermuda cruises, the ship docks at the port for 3 days. You can disembark and embark the ship any time of the day. You have to back on the ship at least 1 hours before sail time on the last day.
At all other destinations where the ship docks in the morning and leaves in the evening, you have to be back on the ship 1 hour before sail time.

You can go ashore shortly after the ship arrives in port on Wednesday and they clear customs, and you can come and go as you please until the ship sails on Friday. I don't believe they "lock up" the ship at night. We had a pier-facing room on our last trip and saw people returning as late as 1am before we turned in.

This should not be a problem as long as they are factory sealed. You may be asked to take them out to verify at security. I had some quart iced tea bottles in my checked baggage that got flagged and I had to open my luggage on the ship. This is intended to deter bringing aboard alcohol.

They will not be next to each other but can be in close proximity to each other as Studio staterooms are co-located on decks 10 & 11. Also, Studios are inside staterooms and Mini-suites have balconies. Refer to the following deck plan links for reference.

The studio staterooms are inside room, so you cannot book a balcony or a mini-suite adjoining a studio. However, you can book it on the same deck.
Here's the floor plan for deck 10. It has the studio staterooms and mini-suites in the same deck.

Yes. You'll be charged a corkage fee for every bottle of wine you bring on board. Where you choose to drink it is irrelevant. The twist cap is likewise irrelevant. The corkage fee is not charged for the labor of removing a cork. It's charged for the privilege of bring your own wine instead of buying theirs.

answer 4
Wine & champagne sales are a source of revenue for the ships, and loss of wine sales can depress earnings. For this reason, the ships charge a corkage fee equivalent to their cheapest bottle, to recoup at least some of the potential lost revenue. This practice is common in the restaurant industry where restaurants allow customers to bring their own wine to the restaurant.
Irrespective of where the bottle has a twist cap or a cork and irrespective of where you consume the wine, you still have to pay the corkage fee.

All staterooms have mini fridges, but they do not store ice; chat with your stateroom attendant and make him/her aware of your needs and they will gladly provide.
Some cruiselines automatically provide ice twice a day, some will do it upon request.
Simply make your needs known and they will do their best to comply.
Hope this helps.

The stateroom has a min-fridge but not an ice maker. However, there is an ice bucket and your cabin steward will fill it with ice in the morning and again in the evening. If you require additional ice, you can always call room service for it.

All staterooms have a mini-fridge stocked like a for fee mini bar like hotels and the room steward typically fills the ice bucket in the stateroom daily. Talk to your room steward if you would like to have the mini-fridge contents removed and additional ice if needed. If he/she does a good job I suggest an extra tip as it's not part of their daily job.
