Emerald or Crown for Panama

Recommended Posts

The Emerald goes through the new locks.  After going through the new locks on the Emerald, we decided we liked the old locks better.  The new locks are one way and you don’t have another ship beside you going up while you’re going down.  Just our preference.

I like the Emerald better. We booked xmas and NYE on the Emerald, Dec. 20,2020.  I have never been

in the new locks, saw them being built over the years.  I like the Emerald better because I have had

some good cruises with that ship.

They are essentially identical ships.  They plus the Ruby are my favorite P ships.  Crown is full Medallion now which is nice. E will be soon.  The key is whether the ships do the same itinerary.  The E goes all the way through and, as far as I know, the C only does partial transit.  I recommend a full transit. We've done the full transit on the old locks twice (plus a partial) and a partial through the new Atlantic locks. Enjoyed all.  We'll be doing a full new locks transit in January on the E.

I like the Emerald Princess better, but both are fine. Itinerary and Price also factor in. We really enjoy eating at SHARE and given your options that's the Emerald. I think a lot of people are contemplating these itineraries right now because there have been a couple of threads on the topic lately. Having the Medallion is a plus for us, it makes it easier to find each other if we are out and about.
