Someone presses play on the track, beats pump through the speakers, the instructor counts down, and everyone starts shaking it in unison. Sweat drips, your heart pumps, and you haven't had this much good clean fun since — well — you be the judge. Welcome to Zumba!

Zumba at Sea

Celebrity Cruises and Zumba have partnered to offer the signature group dance fitness classes at sea, no matter which ship you're sailing. And the best news of all: With the focus on fun as well as fitness, you won't even notice the calories you are burning. Now that's something that'll come in handy on a cruise.

Various ships offer pool-based Aqua Zumba, Zumbatomic for kids and Zumba Gold for active older adults, all at no extra cost. "I have many students who say they don't like to exercise, but that Zumba has completely changed their lives because they enjoy dancing," says Andrea Bonaccorso, the Zumba Fitness Program Director of Celebrity Cruises. “To them, Zumba doesn't feel like exercise."

Added bonus: free dance moves that you can bust out in the nightclub later on.

What should you pack for your onboard workout? "Whatever you're most comfortable in!" Andrea says. “If you have Zumba wear, bring it! If not, any workout gear will be work. And don't forget your sneakers!"

But what if you're a bit shy? “"I give full permission to let loose and have fun!" Andrea says.
