Default buying suntan lotion on board

Does Carnival carry the Austrailian Gold suntan lotion in the shops on board? Want to have some for my upcoming cruise and didn't know if I should buy it now or could buy it on board.

They do have some Australian Gold in their shops...but I've been recently ordering all my tanning lotions from Ebay, they have great deals and you usually get the prduct within 3 business days. Happy Cruising!

I would take my own just to be sure.
And besides...it's probably more expensive on board.

One thing I think I could resist buying would be the overpriced suntan lotion..Save your money for the real goodies, and purchase it at home:-)

Sun tan lotion is like $15 a bottle on board isn't it? Its one of the great scams of the boat! .. At the resort I went to last year it was $30 US a bottle!

It has been said that true wisdom is learned through suffering. Back in May I learned my lesson. I didn't pack suntan lotion, then baked half to death. The ship's shop were VERY expensive so I purchased lotion in port. This stuff didn't fade into the skin..NO it made me chalky white.
Moral of story.....PACK SUNTAN LOTION !! 8)

I would highly recommend purchasing suntan lotion or any other cosmetics, medications, batteries, film, hair products, etc., prior to your cruise. All these items are very expensive when purchased on the ship.
