Enjoy a wonderful show on board today. Peru has many different cultural traditions and one of the most important and representative is dance.

Marinera is one Peru’s typical dances. Marinera is a graceful and romantic couple's dance that uses handkerchiefs as props. The dance is an elegant and stylized reenactment of a courtship and shows a blend of different cultures in Peru. The dance itself has gained recognition and is one of the most popular traditional dances of Peru. A law passed in 1986 officially established the city of Trujillo as the capital of this dance. The Trujillo Marinera Festival has been held in Trujillo since the 1960s. In 2012, the Peruvian Congress declared October 7 as Marinera Day in Trujillo, which is celebrated with a parade and dance expressions.

The origin of the Marinera is generally traced back to the Zamacueca. However, there are several other theories about its origin. The dance is traditionally accompanied by several instruments: cajón, clarinets, guitars, drums, and bugles.
