Don't even bother bringing water. We did based on the answers to this question and it was a waste. There is plenty of water available on the ship, as well as iced tea and lemonade. All free.

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.

I don't believe there is such a thing as a studio that adjoins a mini suite - or a balcony for that matter. The studio cabins are all inside cabins.

The Ice Bar is not available to book prior to the sailing. Once onboard you will be able to make reservations.

You have to make the reservations onboard the ship. The ice bar is a small room and they limit the number of guests at any given time. I've been to the ice bar and we were able to get reservation for the same day. There is a cover charge for the ice bar.

No. Due to fire hazard issues, the staterooms do not have clothes iron and you are not allowed to bring irons on board the ship. However, you can request the Guest Services Desk or the cabin stewards they will be happy to bring you an iron and ironing board for a few hours.

How handicap accessible is the Breakaway and it's activities and entertainment?

Also, how accessible is the port along with Bermuda itself (including shore excursions and beaches).

answer 1
I just returned and had a rented scooter- very needed with all the places to go on board. I recommend getting a handicap room close to the elevators. The cabin area halls are very narrow and often blocked with laundry and restocking carts. Stewards were always helpful and moved them, but it was great to only have a short hall to get into my room.

We just got back from our cruise and can tell you that most of the ship is acesable but during the day with all the deck chairs out I ended up carrying my wife several times to get on and off the sun decks,
I was also told that that all the non handicap rooms doors openings were 26 inches but the clear opening to get a scooter is 24 inches, had to play the scooter game because of this, one last thing also make sure your room is not next to a fire door, most rooms have doors to 2 rooms side by side but not the rooms next to fire door, it will be almost impossible for the person who is handicap to get into the room without help.

All the public areas of the ship are handicap accessible. You won't have an issue moving about the ship and attending any of the events and entertainment onboard the ship.
The ship's crew will assist you in getting on and off the ship at the port. However, once you are in Bermuda, you will need to check the type of shore excursion you plan to do. If you plan to book the excursion through the ship, the shore excursion staff will assist you in planning the best excursion for you. However, if you plan to explore Bermuda on your own, you will have to do some research on the best options.
