LGBT Chamber Holds Ribbon Cutting for Celebrity Cruises

At the December Brewing up Business, the North Texas LGBT Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon cutting for Celebrity Cruises.
 
Celebrity Cruises has been a member of the Chamber since June 2019. We have partnered with them to promote the LGBT Chamber’s first group cruise. Benefits include special group pricing, additional perks, private events, and group excursions. Travelers can enjoy a relaxed atmosphere that can be used for personal time, vacation time, and even some time for business or networking.
 
“People like to do business with people they like,” explains Lisa Howe, Vice President of Membership & Programs at the Chamber. "This is a fun and organic way to possibly meet your next insurance agent, CPA, team member, or bond with a co-worker. A traveler can take advantage of the prices and perks of a group cruise and do as much or as little work as they want."

Kasey Roberson, Market Sales Representative at Celebrity, adds, "As a member of the LGBT Chamber, I have met many loyal professionals and consumers who genuinely have a good time while they work together. I thought Chamber members and the LGBT community, as a whole, would take advantage of the opportunity to travel together."

Celebrity is an LGBT-friendly company who includes sexual orientation and gender identity in their non-discrimination policies for employees, customers, and suppliers. Their parent company, Royal Caribbean Cruises, Ltd. has scored 90-100 on the HRC Corporate Equality Index for several years. 

Kasey and the Chamber are promoting the cruise among members and partners of the LGBT Chamber of Commerce, including GALA, corporate LGBT Employee Resource Groups, and members of the other Texas LGBT Chambers in Austin, Houston, and San Antonio. 

The trip is a five-night Western Caribbean cruise on Celebrity Infinity which leaves out of Miami on March 27, 2021. See the Chamber website for more information. Contact Kasey Roberson at kroberson@celebrity.com to reserve your spot.
