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.

They'll announce each morning when the ship has been cleared and you can disembark. All aboard time will also be announced, and is usually one hour prior to the scheduled departure time.

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.

Answers
answer 1
Its not required that entertainment has to be booked prior to the sailing however it is something that is available to the guests who wishes to do so. The shows would not be 100 % filled prior to you getting onboard so you are able to make reservations once you are onboard as well.
answered 5 months, 4 weeks ago

answer 2
It is advisable to reserve your seats before the show because of the limited number of seats available per show. Certain number of seats are reserved for guests with no reservation and seating is based on availability.
You can reserve the seats by logging into your MyNCL account 90 days (100 days if you are staying in a suite) before your sail date. You can also make reservations onboard the ship.

It's a good idea to pre-book. While there is usually space available on a walk-in basis, the best seats will have been taken by those with reservations.
