Celebrity Cruises celebrates International Women’s Day, with ⅓ female bridge officers in an industry where less than 2% of mariners are women.

 

With a long history of championing diversity and inclusion, Celebrity Cruises has set a new benchmark in the cruise industry, announcing that one third of its bridge officers are now female, in an industry where less than two percent of mariners are women.

 

This Week celebrating International Women’s Day, the brand is changing its global ‘X’ logo to ‘XX’ on its social media channels in honour of the female chromosome and celebration of all those who identify as female. This display is symbolic of the brand’s commitment to equality, advancement and the accomplishments of women and supports this year’s #BreakTheBias international theme.

 

The ‘XX’ logo was also projected onto Celebrity BeyondSM, the company’s highly anticipated, innovative ship under final construction at the Chantiers de l’Atlantique shipyard in St. Nazaire, France in preparation for its April 2022 debut and set to be helmed by female captain, Kate McCue. When McCue manoeuvers Celebrity Beyond from the shipyard, she will become the first woman to helm an inaugural cruise ship sailing, an industry honour commonly referred to as being the ‘take out’ captain.

 

With a penchant for rising above the industry norms, Celebrity has made maritime history for its progressive thinking and barrier-breaking initiatives. In 2015, Lisa Lutoff-Perlo (President & CEO) a catalyst for change in the 200-year-old industry, appointed Captain Kate McCue as the first – and still only – American female ship captain, starting an intentional effort by the brand to attract more women to the industry and into leadership roles across its fleet.
