While the Fantasy headed to dry dock this weekend, all eyes were on the Disney Wonder cruise ship as it became the first large passenger vessel to pass through the new Panama Canal locks.
On April 29th, cruise industry, history was made by the Wonder during a 14 night voyage from Port Canaveral, FL to San Diego, CA. The ship became the first to enter the new Agua Clara Locks before heading south through Gatun Lake and the Culebra Cut, finishing it’s journey into the Pacific through the new Cocoli Locks.
With the new locks, and last year’s refurbishment, the Disney Wonder is ready to set sail with both Alaskan and Mexican cruise itineraries through Summer and Fall 2017. With the recently expanded waterways, all four of Disney’s cruise ships are now able to fit through the canal; could this mean more West Coast itineraries in Disney’s future?
