Disney Wonder Becomes First Passenger Vessel To Pass Through New Panama Canal Locks

by Maria Lisella


In a milestone for the cruise industry, the Disney Wonder has become the first passenger vessel to go through the Panama Canal's new set of locks, 

The Disney Cruise Line’s 2,713-passenger ship was transformed in late 2016. Its length was expanded to 984 feetand enhancements were added, including new imaginative spaces for children themed to Marvel Comics and “Frozen,” a jazzy restaurant inspired by Disney's "Princess and the Frog," and an authentic neighborhood English pub with subtle nods to classic Disney films.

The Disney Wonder Panama Canal crossing is part of a 14-night voyage from Port Canaveral, FL, to San Diego, where the ship will sail cruises to Baja, Mexico, before a summer season from Vancouver to Alaska.
