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.

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.

Boarding usually begins around 12:00 - 12:30 PM for 4:00/5:00 PM departures as they need to clear the ship of all returning passengers and reset for the next group. Passengers are boarded in order of arrival except that Suite, VIP & disabled passengers have priority boarding.

We had booked an aft room on deck 13 for a cruise to Bermuda July of 2013. The booming base noise that vibrated all the way down to our room from the Spice H2O lounge area in the evening until the late hours of the morning was terrible. NCL advertises their aft rooms as quiet, which we experienced on the Gem and Star, but the Breakaway was not. Unless this acoustical/harmonic problem has been solved this would not be a recommendation for the aft on this ship.

We were on the Jewel with an aft facing penthouse. There was no noise except the waves from the engines. We found this very nice and calm. No soot either.

We have had Aft cabins 3 times. There is no noise or soot. We actually enjoy the Aft as you don't get much wind and the balconies are larger than the same rooms on the side of the ship.

Haven't been on the Breakaway yet but based on other NCL ships:

No water drinking fountains (at least I don't recall ever seeing one on any ship).
Tap water in your stateroom is drinkable (reverse osmosis filtration).
You can ask for a glass of water at any restaurant or bar.
Bottled water is available for purchase or you can bring your own as carry-on or checked luggage.

The water onboard the ship is safe to drink. The ship has a water purification system that ensures that the water is safe to drink. The water is used in the restaurants, kitchen, bars and other places on the ship.
However, if you prefer, you can always bring cases of bottled water onboard with you. You can check the water cases along with your luggage and it will be delivered to your room.

The rooms come with water bottles (but you have to pay for them)
I've drank the water from the faucet but would do so as a last resort.
I usually travel with a stainless steel bottle. (no chances of stateroom attendants throwing away your bottle by accident because it's plastic - happen to me once). At the drink stations where the buffets are there is cold water available. They will usually have signs saying not to fill your water bottle there. But you can take one of the cups and use that to fill your travel bottle that way. Best way to stay hydrated during a cruise.
Happy trails :)
