Same-sex marriages performed on board Celebrity Cruises are now legally recognized, the company has announced.
This follows the introduction of marriage equality Malta, where a majority of the Celebrity fleet is registered, which passed the country’s parliament 66-1.
The fleet’s captains can also officiate the ceremonies, a spokesperson added.
‘This is one for the history books!’
‘Celebrity Cruises has a long history of supporting the LGBTQ+ community, and I cannot think of a more important time in our history than right now to do all we can to support inclusion,’ said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, President and CEO of Celebrity Cruises
‘I am absolutely thrilled to announce that starting today, we welcome same-sex couples to marry on our ships while in international waters. This is one for the history books!’
‘Celebrity Weddings has already hosted many same-sex weddings in the US, Mexico, and the Caribbean, where legal,’ said Barbara Whitehall, Managing Director of Celebrity’s ‘The Wedding Experience’.
‘We are ecstatic that this new Malta ruling opens up marriage equality for anyone and everyone sailing with Celebrity Cruises while in international waters.’
