I know that some ships offer some aerobics classes...any offer Zumba classes that you know of? I'm addicted and not sure I could go on vacation with it!

Glad I'm not the only one that admits Zumba addiction. It's been 2 months and I have lost 17 pounds and 6 inches total from bust waist and hips. Still setting goals but Zumba has made it soooo much fun! Leaving tomorrow on Victory will have to check for an alternative!

Im thinking they couldnt call it Zumba just like they dont call group cycling "spinning" Mention it the gym staff and see if there are any plans in the works. Carnival might just wait to see if this is just a hot fad or here to stay.

Another Zumba addict here also!

I am not sure about inches, but I am down 10 lbs in the month that I have found Zumba!

I have been going about 3 times a week, it is so much fun!

Another Zumba addict here! Funny....on my last cruise 3 weeks ago, I heard some Zumba songs at the disco and had to try not to break out my Zumba choreography. Let me stop telling a tale. All my Zumba moves came out on the dance floor, and oh boy did I shake it! A bunch of Zumba people from my gym and a couple other sister gyms in my area are doing a Zumba cruise on the Elation in February. I won't be making that sailing, but I know they are going to have a great time.

Our cool down with one of the instructors is to Michael Jackson's Thriller!

She does the real dance from the music video, and I just can't wait to hear thriller played!

I'm not sure if it would work but maybe if someone asked John Heald on his blog he could talk to someone about getting Zumba on the ships. I have never tried Zumba but I would like too. Good luck!
