Coral Princess Pays Highest Ever Toll in Canal
Coral Princess, the newest ship in Princess Cruises' fleet and the first in a new series of Panamax-style vessels, has already achieved one industry distinction. The 88,000-ton ship, on its inaugural voyage through the Panama Canal, paid cruise-dom's highest toll: a record $245,000. The fee is based on tonnage. Ironically, Coral Princess is not the biggest passenger ship to go through the canal. Celebrity Infinity, the previous highest-toll-ever record-holder, weighs in at 91,000 tons. Infinity paid $200,000 last year (the toll has gone up). Look for Infinity and sister ship Summit to regain that title when they reposition to Alaska from the Caribbean this spring, by way of the Panama Canal.
