On January 22 2011, the MS Queen Elizabeth made her first Panama Canal Transit. MS Queen Elizabeth is a cruise ship of the Cunard Line fleet, owned by Carnival Corporation & plc and operated by Carnival UK. A Vista class ship, Queen Elizabeth is the sister ship of MS Queen Victoria.
From Wikipedia: On 1 September 2010 Cunard Cruise Lines officially confirmed that Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II would name Cunard's new ship. The ceremony was held in Southampton on Monday 11 October 2010 before the Queen Elizabeth set sail on her maiden voyage to the Canary Islands the following day. The Queen was also the sponsor of the now-retired Queen Elizabeth 2 in 1967 and Cunard's current flagship, Queen Mary 2, in 2004.
