That's great! I will be interested in your experience, as we've never been on Oceania before (being relatively new to cruising).

Twice on Pearl Seas, though! Once on Royal Caribbean to Alaska. Love the small ships.
We've been on Oceania cruises twice and have a few more booked in the coming few years. The two things I can say about Oceania is that their main focus is on FOOD and they cater to adults. Simply put, if you bring children along, it will be up to you to entertain them as they have no children facilities onboard. But if you love to eat quality food, whether you enjoy eating in the MDR, their specialty restaurants of which there is no extra charge, or at their buffet where you can have steak and lobster every night if you'd like, you definitely want to check out Oceania. In addition as they now have 6 ships, their itineraries are getting a lot more inyteresting.

Thank you for the information. We're going to Cuba in December, so I'm trying to find out as much as I can.

Oceania is a great line, by the the size, service, food, itineraries, etc.

Just booked a last minute December sailing on the Pearl Mist after our Cuban adventure on the Aegean Odyssey was canceled last Thursday. As my husband and I discovered this cruise company while googling our options, I would appreciate being brought up to speed by Cruise Critic members who have sailed with Pearl Seas to Cuba in 2017.
