How much does it cost for a cruise ship to go through the Panama Canal?

Depends on size and weight of vessel. A private yacht may pay $2000 or less and a large commercial ship up to $150,000. The cost is still less than sailing around South America. Interesting fact: Panama Canal authorities used to charge swimmers 36 cents to pass through.
