Disney Cruise Line Breaks A Record

We'll bet that this is one they weren't going for. According to recent Panama Canal authority reports, Disney Cruise Line paid a record $331,200 when the 964-foot Disney Magic crossed the Panama Canal on May 16th.

Canal fees were increased by Panama last year and cruise ships are now assessed according to the number of beds onboard rather than cargo capacity. With 875 staterooms, Disney Magic surpassed the previous record fee of $313,000 for a passenger ship, which was charged in Oct 2007 to each of two Norwegian Cruise Line ships.
