I sailed on the GEM in 2012 and had a travel iron. The same iron was confiscated on my first and last Carnival Pride cruise.

Probably not, I've done 8 cruises with Royal Caribbean and they weren't allowed. I imagine all the cruise lines have similar rules.

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.

On the Breakaway they step it up and call it the "White Hot & Glow Party". You can wear whites or you can wear florescent clothes. They have black light at the Spice H2O to make you glow!!

my understanding is the breakaway has a glow party. Not the white hot party, so I would think white would not be necessary

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 :)

Once you are 45 days prior to the sailing is when you are able to start making reservations. You may make reservations by logging onto your ncl.com account or by calling into the Reservations Department at 1-800-327-7030.
