Princess Cruises is keeping its passengers in shape, announcing plans to roll out Zumba classes across the entire fleet before the end of the year.
Receiving positive feedback after introducing the Latin style aerobic classes on 11 of its ships in December last year, the cruise line said it would have extra staff trained up to become licensed Zumba instructors before expanding to the rest of its cruises.
“The energetic atmosphere and popularity of Zumba classes inspired us to send our staff members for official training to become licensed Zumba instructors, so that we could offer this fun new fitness option to our passengers,” Princess Cruises executive vice president Jan Swartz said.
“As a result, our onboard Zumba classes are always packed, and consistently receive positive feedback from passengers who are happy to have the opportunity to try something they’ve been hearing about, or to continue with the program they have at home.”
Currently, the group fitness classes are available onboard the Caribbean Princess, Dawn Princess, Diamond Princess, Emerald Princess, Grand Princess, Golden Princess, Island Princess, Ruby Princess, Sapphire Princess, Sea Princess and Star Princess.
