Disney Cruise Blog looks at fitting in the Panama Canal

The Panama Canal has always been a popular and unique cruise itinerary. But as the demand for mega-ships grow, fewer are able to fit in the Canal. In an effort to give some perspective, Disney Cruise Blog posted the graphic above to illustrate how the current Disney Fleet fits (or doesn't fit) in the Canal.

There is good news for those who want to sail through the Panama Canal on a new, large ship. The Canal is nearing completion of an expansion that will enable more traffic and larger ships. The Bridge of the Americas still limits certain heights, but ships can adjust based on tides and what detachable towers and rods they can lower.
