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.
Two free classes
Led by Carnival’s youth staff and aimed at the youngest cruisers, the free-of-charge fleetwide Zumbini program will encompass two classses within the Camp Ocean children’s play areas and other lounges. These are, on all voyages, a 30-minute drop-off class for Carnival Penguins (ages 2 to 5) and on voyage of six days and longer, a 30- to 45-minute family class for children up to 6 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 on-board programming to provide even the youngest cruisers an unforgettable experience,' VP Entertainment Chris Nelson 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,' said Jonathan Beda, CEO of Zumbini, who called Carnival 'the perfect partner to take Zumbini seaside.'
