"In May 2017, Bermuda's Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage. Within months, the island's legislature passed a bill overturning that court decision, which was signed into law on Wednesday."

I'm told that the Regal Princess is still conducting same sex weddings after the ship's Bermuda authority was apparently overturned.

"After the May 2017 ruling, Carnival Corporation had been able to offer same-sex wedding ceremonies onboard its Bermuda-flagged cruise brands, which include Princess Cruises, P&O Cruises and Cunard. The Domestic Partnership Act meant that it was no longer able to do so, regardless of where the brands were sailing.

“As a company committed to equality, inclusion and diversity, we were disheartened by Bermuda’s subsequent reversal of the May 2017 ruling,” Carnival Corp. said. “We support marriage equality and we have been actively engaged in supporting efforts by OUTBermuda – a registered charity that promotes and supports the wellbeing, health, dignity, security, safety and protection of the LGBTQ community in Bermuda -- to legally challenge the action to again allow same-sex marriages on the island.”

Carnival Corp. said that it would provide OUTBermuda with financial, civic and public relations support, as well as involvement by the company. Carnival Corp. will also file an affidavit supporting the legal action by OUTBermuda and Jackson.

"The cruise company and its subsidiaries – Cunard, Princess and P&O – have 24 registered ships in Bermuda. That means same-sex couples cannot marry on board its ships – even in international waters. Couples can register to get the lesser domestic partnership certificate."
