For flying the standard sized bottle of sun tan lotion or sunscreen is too large to put in your carry on. For taking on board the ship you can put a gallon of it in your carry on with no problem.

Put a small amount in a travel sized shampoo container and then put the rest of it in a zip-loc bag and pack it in your checked baggage. I personally never put sunscreen in the carry-on for flying. It's one of those things that if the checked baggage is lost I can always buy it.

If all you have is a carry on then use the travel shampoo bottle and buy some when you get on the ship or at a store in your port of embarkation.
