The pier is about 2.2 miles from Grand Central, there are no shuttles that I know of and using public buses with luggage would be a hassle in my opinion. I think your best option is to grab a cab from the terminal to the pier.

There are no shuttles or direct buses. It's probably a 10-15 minute cab ride depending upon traffic and time of day.

You could take the M42 bus crosstown to the west side and walk uptown to pier 88, but the bus is slow, makes lots of stops, and could be challenging with luggage. Subway would be worse taking the (S) Shuttle to Times Square and then you're still about 3/4 of a mile from 12th Avenue.

I would suggest taking a cab.

It's too far to walk if that's what you're thinking. For public transportation you'd have to walk up to 49th street to catch the M50 bus. A taxi would be much simpler and quicker.

It's all the way cross town from East Side to West Side. You can take the 42 bus cross town all the way to the end (shouldn't take more than 30 minutes) and then walk about 8 blocks... unless there is a lot of traffic.

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.

Yes again, twist-off cap or cork the corkage fees apply to all bottles of wine brought onto the ship regardless of where you drink it. Or buy it by the glass or wine on the ship, refer to NCL's wine list via the following link.

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.

ship to buses for excrsions/to get ride to town

On some ships it is a very long way to get off the ship and get a ride to either an excursion or a ride to town/see the town on your own, Any one know how Bermuda Breakaway is for distance?

It's a short walk to any transportation. We have been to Bermuda 4 times. We always get the 3 day pass for about $30. It is for unlimited bus and ferry service. The ferry takes about 25 minutes to Hamilton and 50 min. to St. Georges. We alway enjoy taking the bus to or from Hamilton (60 minutes). It's nice to experience the areas that are off of the tourist track. The bus drivers are all very accomodating if you just ask them to let you know where you want to get off. Our must sees are: St. Peter's Church at St. Georges, Gibbs Hill Lighthouse, any of the smaller beaches. Maps and bus routes and times are available at the info center inside the building where you normally exit the ship from.Enjoy.

The Breakaway docks at the Heritage Wharf in Bermuda. The shore excursion buses, city buses and taxis are parked just outside the port gates. You probably have to walk 200-300 ft.
Just as an FYI, the city bus services are excellent. You can pick up a 1,2 or 3 day pass that allows unlimited hops on the buses. The pass also gets you on the ferry. The bus is the best way to get around town and stops at all the beaches and tourist spots.

It is a short walk, maybe the length of 2 ships; the ship excursions meet right on the pier, and the buses/vans are right there waiting for you. The Bermuda buses/ferries are just slightly past this; less than a 5 -10 min walk from the ship.

Excursion transportation, buses, ferries & taxis are within a very short distance (approx. 2 city blocks) of where the ship docks at the Dockyards Bermuda. Shopping, restaurants, bar & a beach is conveniently located there as well. Check Bermuda tourism sites for more details and check out their bus/ferry passes for getting around the island.

there is WIFI, but it is not free. You can either pay by the minute or buy a package. The more minutes you buy the cheaper, but you will be looking at paying like 40-50 cents per minute. They do specials, you just have to read the freestyle daily to know what they are. Also, keep in mind, the connections is slow due to it being satellite internet.

Cigar smoking is more restricted compared to cigarette smoking. You are only allowed to smoke outdoor away from the pool and food areas. You cannot smoke cigars in the balcony and casino where cigarette smoking is allowed. There is a cigar lounge on the Breakaway where you are allowed to smoke.
