Malta clears the way for Celebrity Cruises to stage legal same-sex marriages at sea

Celebrity Cruises has been given the all clear to conduct legal same-sex marriages at sea.

It follows a parliamentary vote in Malta, where a majority of the Celebrity fleet is registered, to legally recognise same-sex marriage.

“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 said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, president of Celebrity Cruises.

“I am absolutely thrilled to 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 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.”

The Celebrity Weddings programme offers on board ceremonies and destination weddings for lovebirds. 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.
