Carnival Cruise Line has this week announced the expansion of its onboard youth programming. The new programme is exclusive partnership with Zumbini will offer 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.
Commenting, 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.”
