Ocean Village caters to dance fever

Date Posted: 19 Nov 2007
Cruise company Ocean Village has responded to requests from passengers to provide dance classes by introducing a new dance-fitness regime to its cruises.

Latin-inspired Zumba allows passengers to create an easy dance rhythm through a combination of six simple dance steps and was implemented on ships Ocean Village and Ocean Village Two after results from survey 'Murder on the Dancefloor' revealed that a quarter of Britons would like to improve their footwork on the dance floor by learning some easy moves.

Meanwhile, the study also revealed that 62 per cent of women would prefer to lose weight through dancing than by joining a gym.

"Now that we offer Zumba onboard our passengers can learn a few new dance steps and get really fit into the bargain," commented Nick Lighton, Managing Director of Ocean Village.

He added that he expected take-up of the dance classes to surge in the coming week as television show Strictly Come Dancing has a "massive effect" on sign-up to dance classes

Other entertainment available onboard Ocean Village cruises includes acrobatic shows such as Planet, taking place on Ocean Village Two.

"I booked my first ever cruise on Tuesday 5th September 2017. After lengthy searching and much deliberation we booked through Iglu. So far, I am incredibly happy I booked with Iglu. This being our first cruise Debi proved very helpful. I was [also] very impressed with the level of assistance offered by Connie. She answered my questions and put my mind at rest. I am very impressed with all aspects of dealing with Iglu and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support. "

"Leighanne has been excellent dealing with my various queries this year. She has been kind and informative and obtained what i think is a good deal for me in October. She is persistent and very informative, so even when my 1st deal fell through I felt confident enough to approach her for this present Crystal cruise...”
