Crown Princess through the Panama Canal

Recommended Posts

We just did a full transit of the Panama Canal in April. We attended lectures given by an expert on the canal and who had grown up in the Canal Zone.

He discussed the fees ships must pay to use the canal. It is based upon the volume of each ship. The new locks will handle the big container ships. Bigger ships = bigger volume = higher total fee. The expert said nothing about the rate, ($ per unit of volume), being any different for the new locks when compared to the old locks.


The panama Canal Expansion website gave the new prices. They have been slowly going up since the Canal was transferred to Panamanian control.
