Vacationers who wish to get in shape while still having a blast this year are in for a treat, as Norwegian Cruise Line will introduce the popular international-inspired dance-fitness program Zumba Fitness to its ships beginning 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.
Encouraging guests to “ditch the workout and join the party,” the Zumba program 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 bash.
“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, beginning this spring in a phased roll out to its ships.
