Disney Cruise Line said its 2,713-passenger Disney Wonder became the first cruise ship to transit the new locks of the Panama Canal.

The Wonder was expanded in length in a drydock in late 2016 to 984 feet. The original locks in the canal can accommodate ships no longer than 950 feet. The new locks, completed in 2016, are built parallel to the original ones and can take ships up to 1,201 feet long.

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