Caribbean Princess makes history in larger Panama Canal locks

Friday, November 10, 2017

Caribbean Princess set a milestone for Panama Canal cruise sailings recently, becoming the first mega cruise ship to travel through the expanded "Panamax" locks.

The old Panama Canal locks had limits on the size that cruise ships could be; the maximum width for vessels entering the canal was 106 feet. The new locks opened in June 2016.
