Carnival Cruise Line is expanding its youth program thanks to an exclusive partnership with Zumbini. The program includes singing, dancing and playing.
New Zumbini and Carnival Partnership
The Miami-based cruise line has partnered up with Zumbini offering high-energy early childhood activities which combine singing, dancing and playing. The new complementary programs will be run by Carnival’s youth staff and aimed at the youngest cruisers.
Chris Nelson, vice president of entertainment for Carnival Cruise Line, said:
“Carnival carries 800,000 children annually, the most in cruising, so we’re always expanding and enhancing our onboard programming to provide even the youngest cruisers an unforgettable experience.”
“We are so excited to bring Zumbini to our ships and to give families and their children a unique experience.”
The onboard Zumbini program is fleetwide with two class options taking place at the Camp Ocean spaces such as the children’s play areas and other lounges.
All cruises will have a 30-minute drop-off class for two to five-year-olds. Longer cruises of six days and longer will feature 30 to 45-minute family class for children up to six years old. The longer option will focus on parent and child bonding.
Jonathan Beda, CEO of Zumbini, said:
“Based on the revolutionary Zumba exercise programs for adults, Zumbini’s classes have soared in popularity on land, so I can only imagine how wonderful they will be on the high seas.”
“We knew Carnival was the perfect partner to take Zumbini seaside and cannot wait to give Carnival’s guests the ultimate bonding experience and a new way to Choose Fun.”
The new Zumbini partnership could impact the 800,000 children which the cruise line carries annually. Carnival Cruise Line also recently announced a partnership with Michaels for Arts and Crafts at Sea and SkyZone for a trampoline park on the upcoming Carnival Panorama.
