Wanted full passage Panama canal cruise and Emerald Princess delivered. I found this to be a mostly wonderfully cruise with fabulous entertainment  and games galore. While it was his last assignment on Emerald, Fernando the cruise director was everywhere helping to entertaining guests with games and contests. The shows were great,, especially the premiere of ROCK OPERA. Balcony cabin on Baja 11 deck with comfortable bed near laundromat was fine. Was prepared with adaptor to makeup for no usb outlets.. Dining room food was mostly good for dinners and glad they still offer the favorites menu options. However, most of the large varieties at the buffet was slop! But the buffet staff was accommodating when asked,, such as grilling turkey without garlic on request. Wish was more American varieties at buffet. But biggest complaint was lack of another port stop, given they canceled Nicaragua, meaning too many sea days for the long 15 day cruise. BTW, I wound up ill on disembarkation day, testing positive for Covid that evening when home. There was a total lack of precautions against preventing Covid on this ship. Worst was how some people insisted on over cramming into elevators(@ first I was masking).
