After two years of maxing out registrations and catering to more than 7,000 adventure-seeking fitness enthusiasts, Zumba® has officially announced 2018 dates for its third annual Zumba® Cruise onboard Royal Caribbean International’s Navigator of the Seas. Travelers can take those shower-dancing skills to the sea and prepare to move like never before when they depart for five nights on April 8-13, 2018.
Along with visiting two all-new tropical destinations–Costa Maya, Mexico and the Grand Cayman Islands–cruisers may partake in on-ship entertainment like Broadway-style shows, incredible live music experiences, relaxing spa treatments and daily pool parties; but most importantly, experience some of the best Zumba classes ever.
“The Zumba Cruise is the ultimate class pass, and with two new destinations, we know 2018 will be another major opportunity for us to continue bringing happiness and health into the lives of so many through exercise and music,” said Carolina Moraes,VP of Marketing for Zumba. “2018 is just around the corner and we don’t plan on slowing down. New music performances, new classes, new parties — get ready!”
The music and live entertainment events being planned are no joke. More than 20 concerts have featured some of today’s hottest artists, like 2017 headliners Shaggy and Wyclef, and 2018 promises to deliver even more dynamic experiences within fitness and music.
“What an experience performing on the Zumba Cruise and feeding off all the positive vibes and energy. The happy factor, the dancing, the people–all of these elements made it one of the best performances I’ve ever had,” said Shaggy, Jamaican artist and award-winning reggae star. “Zumba has become such a valuable platform for music discovery, and aside from live classes, the cruise is another opportunity to get to party with the global Zumba fam.”
If the idea of concerts and music doesn’t excite you enough, guests also have the chance to ‘get their workout on’ with 50 of the best celebrity Zumba instructors from all over the world, including master classes with Zumba® creator, Beto Perez. There are also specialty classes, like Aqua Zumba® and Zumba® Toning, plus sun-seekers may try Zumba’s new popular music-led HIIT workout, STRONG by Zumba® (no dancing here!).
“Hosting Zumba’s energy-packed cruises has been another great opportunity to show travelers exactly how a cruise vacation with Royal Caribbean is an incredible adventure,” said Vicki Freed, Senior Vice President, Sales, Trade Support and Service, Royal Caribbean International. “Offering our signature features on board Navigator of the Seas, from rock climbing and ice skating to world-class entertainment, we’re thrilled to be collaborating with Zumba for the third consecutive year to discover more ways to take dancing and fitness at sea to the next level.”
No matter what you are looking for, your adrenaline and endorphins will hit an all-time high as the Zumba Cruise is guaranteed to be a party you will never forget.
