natural marriagePassengers who board an upcoming cruise may be in for a shock.  

According to Fox News and other outlets, Carnival Corporation has announced  that three of its cruise liners – P&O, Princess and Cunard - will start conducting same-sex marriages onboard.

The decision follows a Supreme Court ruling in Bermuda that legalized same-sex marriage. The P&O, Princess and Cunard are registered in Bermuda.

"It's not surprising that Carnival would be at the forefront of promoting same-sex marriage," says Robert Kuykendall, director of communications for 2ndVote, the conservative watchdog for corporate activism. "2nd Vote has looked into Carnival's activity as a corporation and found that they are very close with the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), a very controversial corporation at the forefront of promoting the LGBT agenda."

Carnival Corporation is also part of Florida Competes, a coalition to protect what it calls homosexual and transgender Floridians from discrimination.

"Florida Competes is a business coalition that's trying to push special protection class status for sexual orientation, gender identity in Florida," says Kuykendall.

On its webpage devoted to wedding ceremonies, Carnival says it does perform same-sex marriages, adding "some of our ports recognize legal same-sex wedding ceremonies."

Carnival goes on to note that, in some ports, it can provide "symbolic same-sex ceremonies."
