Carnival Cruise Line introducing kids Zumba classes

Carnival Cruise Line is bringing a toddler-friendly version of Zumba to the high seas.

A new partnership will see Zumbini classes added to shipboard kids programs.

Created by Zumba and Baby First, Zumbini caters to children up to six years old with high-energy dance, group sing-alongs and the use of musical instruments.

Depending on the itinerary, classes range from 30-minute 'drop-off' sessions to longer classes with parents.

"When we realized that Zumba was transforming the fitness community and turning rigorous dance and aerobic movements into fun, approachable and sharable experiences, we saw the potential to make classes specific to families and children," said Alberto Perlman, CEO of Zumba.

Jonathan Beta, CEO of Zumbini said: "We knew Carnival was the perfect partner to take Zumbini seaside and can't wait to give Carnival's guests the ultimate bonding experience." 

Carnival's comprehensive shipboard youth programs cover all childhood age groups from Penguins (2-5 years old), Stingrays (6-8 years old) and Sharks (9-11 years old).

It also offers two teen clubs for 12-14 and for 15-17 year olds.
