At Celebrity Cruises, we believe in “opening up the world” and value the importance of celebrating diversity. Some of the initiatives we’ve taken to welcome the LGBTQ+ community onboard have been:
Cruise Fare Savings Per Person (1 st /2 nd Guest Only)
Choice of the following prices point:
First Legal Same Sex Marriage at Sea
In a historic ceremony hosted onboard Celebrity Equinox ℠ in January 2018, Francisco Vargas and Benjamin Gray became the first same-sex couple ever to be legally married at sea on a major cruise line.
Largest Pride Party at Sea
On June 5th, 2018, Celebrity Cruises hosted the second-annual fleetwide Pride Party at Sea in honour of Pride month. Both guests and crew were invited to join in the festivities.
LGBTQ+ Events Onboard
Our popular LGBTQ+ Welcome Parties are open to all guests fleet wide and take place on the first night of almost every cruise. This event is a great ice breaker and a wonderful opportunity for people to meet. In addition to the Welcome Party, Celebrity Cruises also hosts various LGBTQ+ events and social hours onboard.
Presenting Sponsor of Miami Beach Gay Pride
Celebrity Cruises has been a major sponsor for Miami Beach Gay Pride two years in a row. We’ve hosted on-site festival events, themed giveaways and entertainment performances from our Celebrity Productions team including specialty performances by Savannah Smith and Ashlee Amber. Over 400+ employees marched in the parade in 2018.
Due to these initiatives, we have been awarded the Best Large Ship Cruise Line for LGBTQ+ Passengers at the Cruizie Awards for four years running.
So come, sail with pride onboard Celebrity Cruises.
