LGBTQ+ WEDDINGS ACHIEVE

LEGAL STATUS AT SEA

After a transformative vote in Malta, where a majority of Celebrity Cruises’ fleet is registered, the company has announced their fleet’s captains may now legally officiate onboard same-sex marriages. Though many onboard same-sex weddings in the United States, Mexico, and Caribbean waters were already legal, this new Malta ruling opens up marriage equality for anyone and everyone sailing with Celebrity Cruises while in international waters, meaning the Celebrity Weddings program can legally offer onboard ceremonies and destination weddings for the LGBTQ+ community. The Nautical Nuptials at Sea package includes a Captain-led ceremony, an event coordinator’s services, live music, one hour of photography, cake for two, bottle of champagne, a bouquet and boutonniere, plus additional romantic turndown amenities post-ceremony. 800-437-3111, www.celebritycruises.com/groups-and-events/special-occasion-cruises/wedding-cruises
