I would propably already booked Norwegian Breakaway but then I read the reviews that said that Jogging track there is not very good. And that is very important to us both. But i am wondering if we could run in bermuda?

Summit also seems great but is it too boring and small for us after oasis? I am also wondering if celebritys dress code is too much for us because we are kind of casual people. And we also dont have enormous budget so is there only expensive wines etc.?

Carnival seems to have very low price since that cruise is longest we are considering. But is the Splendor too partyparty for us?

Gem has the lowest price and seems nice ship but we dont like too many children around so I have heard that gem has alot of small children.

And with explorer i am wondering is it too similar than oasis which we are going to experience already in december?

I would be grateful if someone would comment these things I am wondering. And sorry bad english!
I was going to recommend the Breakaway, but then I saw your comment about entertainment and food and thought the ship would probably be wasted on you. . It is more pricey than some, so why spend the extra money if those things are not important.

But, you might want to consider it just for Bermuda! In port for 3 days. Lots to do there. We were there last summer and loved it. Not at all like a typical Bahamian or Caribbean port. The port area itself is very nice with lots of nice shopping and things to do. You could probably jog in the port area or just outside. Or, I believe there is an extensive trail ( old railroad ) for biking and jogging which might be a good possibility. The beaches are wonderful. Easy transportation by ferry and bus. No need to book tours, unless something of special interest.
