In the following images we see the Norwegian Jewel and the Island Princess in their respective north bound Panama Canal transits on Monday October 08 2012. The Norwegian Jewel  Cruise Ship is seen in the Gatun Lake approaching the Gatun Locks and in the other images togehter with the Island Princess cruise ship in the Gatun Locks. These Cruise ships pay record tolls for the Panama Canal transit that ranges up to 400'000 US Dollars depending on the ships sizes. The Panama Canal website states: "In the case of passenger vessels, the ACP assessed tolls based on the maximum passenger capacity in accordance with the International Tonnage Certificate 69, or the vessel’s passenger ship safety certificate; vessels over 30,000 gross tons and whose PC/UMS ÷ maximum passenger capacity ratio is equal to or less than 33 were charged on a per berth basis."
