Celebrity Cruises host ‘Pride Party at Sea’

Celebrity Cruises host the second annual Pride Party at Sea across its fleet around the world, with Adam Rippon and Johnny Weir serving as ambassadors.

FROM Alaska to Italy, Celebrity celebrate Pride Month by hosting its second annual Pride Party at Sea with Olympic bronze medallist figure skater Adam Rippon and two-time men’s figure skating Olympian Johnny Weir serving as ambassadors for this year’s festivities.

The luxury cruise line also hosted a pride parade at sea on-board each ship, as festivities started on June 5 on-board Celebrity Constellation and Celebrity Reflection in Sicily, Italy, and Cartagena, Spain, respectively.

“Celebrity Cruises has been and always will be dedicated to promoting diversity, inclusivity and equality, and part of the dedication includes knowing when to take time to celebrate the hard work and successes of the LGBT+ communities,” said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, President and CEO, Celebrity Cruises. “Pride Month is the perfect time to celebrate and, with all of the fun we had last year, it made perfect sense that we’d continue the tradition, only this time it will be twice the fun and twice the party.”

Adam Rippon, who is currently sailing on board Celebrity Summit for the celebration, said: “I’m honoured to be an ambassador for Celebrity Cruises’ second annual Pride Party at Sea! It’s great to collaborate with a brand that is so dedicated to the LGBT+ communities.”

The party took place in tandem across the award-winning Celebrity Cruises fleet, with each ship ‘handing over the baton’ to the next to keep the celebrations going across hemispheres and time zones. Eventually, the party travelled more than 10,000 miles to nine ships around the world.

Celebrity Cruises welcomed thousands of guests to the inaugural event last year – which was planned as a show of solidarity and with an effort to celebrate the LGBT+ communities – with Tie The Knot co-founder Justin Mikita serving as ambassador.
