Cunard wins first booking for same-sex wedding

Cunard has welcomed its first booking by a same-sex couple following a recent Supreme Court ruling enabling same-sex marriages in Bermuda, where Cunard's fleet of ships is registered.

The ruling means Cunard, which has offered weddings on its ships for the past five years and has married more than 250 couples, joins P&O Cruises as Briatin’s first cruise lines to be able to conduct same-sex wedding ceremonies at sea.

“Cunard is proud to become among the first cruise lines to offer same-sex marriages at sea,” said Josh Leibowitz, senior vice president, Cunard North America.

“Cunard has brought people together through travel for over 175 years, and we’re proud to mark another milestone in our company’s history as we welcome our first gay marriage booking and many other marriages to come.”

Wedding ceremonies will be performed by the ship’s Captain and the marriage license will be issued by Bermuda.
