Cunard and P&O Cruises are headline sponsors of Southampton Pride, being held in Southampton Guildhall Square on Saturday 26 August. Both brands have a proud and long history of welcoming LGBT+ guests and colleagues on board our ships; everyone is welcome however they identify.

Join the Pride Squad

To support Southampton Pride and LGBT+ people we’ll be proudly marching in the parade and representing our brands as inclusive holiday companies and places to work.  If you’d like to join our Pride Squad and receive an exclusive Pride Squad pack with branded t-shirt to wear on the day, email Spectrum.

Our LGBT+ Executive Sponsors and Allies

To support our DEI ambitions, each member of our Executive Leadership Team (ELT) has committed to championing a particular diverse characteristic across the business. Jo and Donnacha represent our LGBT+ colleagues.

With a multi-national workforce, we recognise the power of diversity and are focused on making sure everyone feels valued and that they belong. We believe in inclusion and are committed to building diverse teams. As we grow, we’re working to ensure we all consider the needs of each other in every single decision we make.

Our employee-led networks help us do this by supporting our Executive Sponsors and Allies alongside recognising and celebrating our differences. Spectrum, our LGBT+ & Friends network, drives awareness of LGBT+ issues, encourages allyship and celebrates LGBT+ people through events like Pride.

Spectrum is Carnival UK’s LGBT+ & Friends employee-led network, supporting belonging and inclusion by championing, challenging and celebrating the LGBT+ agenda. Encouraging colleagues to be curious, they drive allyship to promote positive change across Carnival UK and the communities we are a part of, creating a feeling of belonging for everyone.
