The LGBTQ community is celebrating! I’ll drink to that!
Cruise line Celebrity Cruises is now be able to perform legally-recognized same-sex weddings on-board, thanks to a landmark vote in Malta, where most of the line’s fleet is registered.
A motion in predominantly Catholic Malta passed the country’s parliament 66 to 1 in July, amending the “you are now husband and wife” declaration in civil ceremonies with “you are now spouses.” That opened the door for Celebrity to legally recognize same-sex marriage performed in international waters, and for the fleet’s captains to officiate the ceremonies!
