I though as long as the cap is seal, Is good. I don't need a case of water, I was thinking bring couple bottle of seltzer water and couple of the regular water.

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.

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.

I was on the Breakaway in Sept and they didn't have lobster in the main dining room (as I have seen on other ships in the past). On the second day of the cruise, the buffet had a seafood night theme and they served lobster tails there.

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 :)
