HAL is THINKING big for it's next-generation ships


Awaiting results of mental evaluation
With the expansion of the Panama Canal increasing the size of the locks to 427 meters (1,400 ft) long, 55 meters (180 ft) wide, and 18.3 meters (60 ft) deep; this will allow the transit of vessels with a beam of up to 49 meters (160 ft), an overall length of up to 366 meters (1,200 ft) and a draft of up to 15 meters.; I would submit that there is a very real possibility that we may eventually see ships along the lines of the PRINCESS KAGUYA.
