A human rights lawyer has called for a cruise ship operator to boycott Bermuda after the country repealed its same-sex marriage laws. The British Dependent Territory became the first nation in the world to repeal same sex marriage, passing the Domestic Partnership Act on 7 February. Lawyer Jamison Firestone wrote an open letter to Cruise Corporation – which handles cruise operators Cunard, Prince and P&O – calling for them to no longer cruise under the flag of Bermuda. The corporation has 24 registered ships in Bermuda, meaning that under Bermudan law, same sex couples are now no longer to marry on board the ships – even in international waters.
