Top 5 Memories from the Zumba® Cruise

By now, you’ve unpacked your suitcase and posted your pics, and you’re probably missing the cruise like crazy! Or, maybe a serious case of FOMO has set in from hearing about everyone else’s trip. If you’re missing the cruise (or if you missed it all together), we’ve got you covered! Check out our favorite memories from the trip and ways to recreate the experience at home.

Getting a special performance of Wyclef Jean’s new song:
After Wyclef and Beto shared a little bromance, Wyclef performed favorite hits like Guantanamera and Hips Don’t Lie. He also sang his new song, Lady Haiti, previewing the new release for cruisers. To recreate this special musical moment, ask your Zumba® Instructor to play some Wyclef music in your next class!

Dancing with the world’s best Zumba Instructors.
On the ship, classes were taught by over 50 of the most amazing dancers, fitness instructors, and all-around inspiring men and women you can imagine! Beto’s classes were taught poolside and the energy from the crowd was awesome. To recreate the feeling of dancing with the best of the best, search for a class near you or take it a step further and join the amazing Zumba community by signing up for a Zumba Instructor training or specialty course to learn from one of our inspiring Zumba® Education Specialists.

Helping children in need together as a community.
When we arrived in Cozumel, cruisers stopped to offer donations of school supplies to help Mexican students who couldn’t afford materials needed for their education. To recreate the sense of community and helping those in need, look for a local Zumbathon or charity event.

Working new muscles with specialty Zumba classes.
Many cruisers tried variations of their beloved Zumba class on the ship, like Zumba® Toning, Aqua Zumba®. To recreate stepping out of your comfort zone, check out a new class format at your local gym.

Spotting famous faces all over the place.
Cruisers were amazed to see artists like J. Perry and Shaggy on the ship – just hanging out, dancing, and of course performing their most popular songs. Even Beto was spotted all over the ship, taking selfies and dancing with the crowd.
