Holiday makers who wish to stay in shape whilst away are in for a treat this year, as Norwegian Cruise Line will introduce the popular international-inspired dance-fitness programme Zumba Fitness to its ships. From this spring Norwegian will offer a variety of energetic Zumba® classes on every cruise, led by licensed Zumba® instructors who are part of the Zumba Instructor Network (ZIN™).
Encouraging guests to “ditch the workout and join the party,” the Zumba programme is contagious, combining high-energy dance music including hip-hop, salsa, African beats and Reggaton with fun, global-inspired dance moves to create an irresistible calorie-burning routine.
“We are excited to bring Zumba Fitness onboard our ships and offer guests not just a new way to work out, but an exhilarating and easy-to-follow dance fitness-party,” said Kevin Sheehan, Norwegian Cruise Line CEO. With 14 million followers across the globe in more than 150 countries, Zumba is an international movement, turning the dreaded “work out” into a fun-filled celebration known as “exercise in disguise,” where participants can burn up to 1,000 calories. Norwegian Cruise Line will offer a selection of the most popular Zumba classes at no charge, in a phased roll out across the fleet.
