Zumba Cruise 2018

May 20, 2018

So, since I haven't posted anything on my Zumba page since the convention last year, I figured I should post again before this year's convention. Friends who have been on the first two Zumba Cruises always said how much they enjoyed it. Mia and I finally decided to go this year and it was a blast!

I'm looking at the photos I took. There are 495. So, I won't be posting them all here. I'll give you the Reader's Digest (is everyone too young to know what that means?) Version of the trip and post a few pics here. The rest are on in my Dropbox.

I didn't know what to expect as the last cruise I was on was in 1995 when I was pregnant with Nic. It was actually pretty seamless getting on even though 3,000 people were boarding. There was dancing during the wait, we made knew friends. This is Kirsten from London. Sweet girl!


Our friends Robin and Dee had the cabin directly across from us.

I took a picture with a fake Beto in case I never saw him on the cruise.

Rosy and Beto

But then I saw him!!!!

Also ran into Gina Grant right away. She's so beautiful! I need to practice a picture face. Yuk.

Rosy and Gina

We sat down to have our first drink just after boarding and found locals Jay, Miggy and Ricky...and then along came Mexico ZES, Oscar, with Guapo Manuel.

Oscar Mexico ZES

Also met Texas girl, Lauren, who had just met Miggy and Ricky.


We were surprised to find local guy, El Aliga, on the cruise. You see him at all the Zumba events. Also, he told us someone asked him if he was Bruno Mars' uncle. LOL

El Aliga

On our way to Costa Maya, here's Mia with Cuba in the background.

Mia and Cuba

Here is the beautiful port of Costa Maya, Mexico. I didn't get off. I should have but I was afeared.

We ran into Ai-Lee, the master trainer for Strong by Zumba. Mia showed her her STRONG tattoo. She was like, "Is that real?!" It is!

Mia and Ai-Lee

Oh my gosh...there are so many dancing clips and pictures! Beto danced the first night on the pool deck. I posted that on FB. Every night after dancing at the various classes held throughout the ship, we ended up at the nightclub and danced until at least 3:00 am!

Then more dancing everyday! This was Hermann Melo and Loretta Bates' class. So fun! I'm going to have to do this song this way in class.

Here we are at the Glow Party. Beto is dancing with Betsy Dicopo.

Hanging out in the club with the guys from the Columbian band, Locos por Juana. He reminded me of Motsy.

Grand Cayman was beautiful, clean, beautiful. Lovely people. The police don't even carry guns and are really easy on the eye. Clear, clear water. See the barracudas? They were waiting for the scraps from the fish cleaning.

Grand Cayman

Street scene. Coconut guy, chicken, Mia.

Back to beautiful Miami Beach.

So much fun! So many pictures! So many new friends! I think I might want to do this again. Like I said, all 495 pictures are on my Dropbox. Enjoy. Too bad I can't caption them. They are out of sequence because my iPhone updated its time but my camera did not. Plus, it wants to separate the iPhone and camera pics. Aargh.
