For a fourth year running, Celebrity Cruises is celebrating Pride Month across the brand’s growing global fleet by hosting its fourth annual Pride Party at Sea onboard the Celebrity Edge® during its 4 June 2022 sailing.
Check out the video for its third Pride Party at Sea with Olympic medalist Adam Rippon reprising his role as Grand Marshal for the festivities.
Celebrity’s 30 Days of Pride have been ongoing since the first of the month, with a variety of multi-generational LGBTQ+-focused programming happening each day of the week across the fleet. All of this led up to the Pride Party at Sea extravaganza, which took place on 10 ships across the brand’s fleet, including one of Celebrity’s newest ships, Celebrity Edge. Together, Officers, staff and guests around the world have been participating in signature Pride programs such as The Largest Kiki At Sea, Silent Disco Pride, and Pride Art Hour.
The party will take place in tandem across the award-winning Celebrity Cruises fleet, with each ship “handing off the party baton” to the next to keep the festivities running across hemispheres and time zones.
Not only does Celebrity Cruises host the largest Pride Party At Sea, but the brand also fosters a culture of inclusion across their entire fleet, all year round. For example, the popular LGBTQIA+ Welcome Parties are open to all guests fleetwide and take place on the first night of almost every cruise.
