    24 Hours Aboard a Celebrity Cruise

    Celebrity Cruises is one of the most LGBTQ-friendly cruise lines and is known for valuing all aspects of diversity—reflected among the guests and crew. As a result, Celebrity received the LGBTQ+ Friendly Travel Company of the year award for 2016 at the TTG Travel Awards. Celebrity also won the title of Best Large Ship Cruise Line for LGBTQ+ Passengers at the Cruizie Awards for four years running.

    As of last year, same-sex marriages performed on board Celebrity ships by the Captain are legally recognized. In a historic ceremony hosted aboard Celebrity Equinox in January 2018, Francisco Vargas and Benjamin Gray became the first same-sex couple ever to be legally married at sea on a major cruise line!

    Guests therefore often come for weddings, honeymoon celebrations, memorable vacations or even Pride events. This past June’s Pride Party at Sea was the largest such party on an ocean liner. Celebrity has also been a major sponsor for Miami Beach Gay Pride, with over 400+ of their employees marching in the parade this past year alone.

    We further appreciate Celebrity’s recognized efforts at environmental stewardship. Read more about that at:

    Even without leaving the ship, guests can enjoy an unforgettable experience. This photospread provides just a taste of what 24 hours might include on the various elegant Celebrity ships as they transport guests to exotic locations across the globe.

    Soirée on the Bay: Celebrity Cruises Celebrates Love + Diversity

    This year marks the 40th Anniversary of both the San Francisco Bay Times and the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus (along with many other LGBT groups and businesses). We invite you to party with us on September 17 aboard the Celebrity Solstice, the lead ship of the Solstice-class of elegant vessels operated by Celebrity Cruises. The event will benefit the Richmond/Ermet Aid Foundation, which supports programs providing food for the needy and programs helping homeless and disenfranchised youth, in addition to continued funding for HIV programs in the Bay Area.

    Soirée on the Bay will take place from 6–9 pm on board the Solstice at Pier 27. Guests will be treated to champagne in the Solarium upon arrival. Emceed by Fernando and Greg from the popular 99.7 NOW! radio show, the evening will include a performance from the Broadway touring cast of the Tony Award-winning Phantom of the Opera.

    Guests will also enjoy handcrafted cocktails from a full hosted bar, gourmet appetizers, and singers and dancers from Celebrity’s onboard entertainment team. Attendees will be among the first to preview The Celebrity Revolution, the brand’s largest modernization program, with over 11,641 staterooms being revolutionized over the span of five years across 12 ships.

    Guests as well as members of the media will additionally be able to tour the rest of the ship and get a sneak-peek of the features of the hotly anticipated new Celebrity Edge, launching in November 2018, with the brand’s most technologically advanced theater and revolutionary entertainment. 

    Due to Port regulations, all tickets must be ordered by no later than September 10, so please consider joining us for this memorable evening!
