Disney Wonder: First Passenger Vessel to Transit New Panama Canal Locks

As part of the ship's 14-night voyage from Port Canaveral, Florida, to San Diego, the Disney Wonder became the first passenger vessel to go through the Panama Canal's new set of locks. Once the Disney Wonder reaches San Diego, it will sail cruises to Baja, Mexico, before a summer season from Vancouver to Alaska.

The 2,713-passenger ship was transformed in late 2016, expanding the ship's length to 984 feet. Headlining the ship's new enhancements are new imaginative spaces for children, including areas themed to the Marvel Universe and Disney's 'Frozen'; a restaurant inspired by Disney's 'Princess and the Frog'; and an authentic neighborhood English pub. 

Earlier this year, Travel Agent highlighted several new experiences coming to Disney Cruise Line's Disney Fantasy beginning May 2017. Experiences including activity themes such as Star Wars, Marvel and new shopping venues.
