    Carnival, Zumbini Partner for Youth Program

    (PRESS RELEASE)_MIAMI (April 22, 2019) – Carnival Cruise Line expands its onboard youth programming with an exclusive partnership with Zumbini offering high-energy early childhood activities and classes that combine singing, dancing and playing.

    Created by Zumba and BabyFirst, Zumbini’s mixed-age music and movement curriculum features group sing-alongs, activities and musical instruments to keep children engaged and energized while learning.

    Led by Carnival’s trained youth staff and aimed at Carnival’s youngest cruisers, the fleetwide onboard Zumbini program, which will be free of charge, will encompass two class options taking place within the Camp Ocean children’s play areas and other lounges:

    ·         All voyages: 30-minute drop-off class for Carnival Penguins age group (two-to-five years old);

    ·         Voyages of six days or longer: 30-to-45-minute family class for children up to six years old focused on parent/child bonding.

    “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,” said Chris Nelson, vice president of entertainment for Carnival Cruise Line. “We are so excited to bring Zumbini to our ships and to give families and their children a unique experience.”

    “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.

    “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,” said Jonathan Beda, CEO of Zumbini. “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.”
