No it is not too wide to travel through the Panama Canal. I took this picture looking back from the top deck of a cruise ship I was on while travelling in the Panama Canal. It is the perspective that makes this ship look too wide. The narrow look of the locks you can see behind this ship only appear too narrow for this ship because of the long distance back they are.
