caribbean princess to sail through the panama canal

Wow!  If you have not been on a cruise through the extraordinary Panama Canal, now is the time to explore this destination.  Completed after 10 years with the help of $5.4 billion dollars, the new Panama Canal locks, "Panamax", opened on June 26, 2016, 

 

When the canal opened in 1914 it was able to handle ships carrying 5500 containers.  Now, remarkably, it can accommodate ships carrying up to 13.000 containers.

 

The 118 foot wide 3142 passenger Caribbean Princess is honored to be the first passenger ship to transit the new "Panamax" locks.  This voyage commences October 21, 2017.  Be among the first to experience this unique voyage.
