Western Caribbean.....do I need OFF or DEET? Is there any product that won't make me stink like bug spray? Or will I most likely not even need to use it?

You won't need it when the ship is at sea. When in port you might need it if there is no breeze. Bring along a bottle just in case.

I was checking out the excursions in Belize and ALL of them say to bring bug spray! Please don't tell me I'll be eaten alive by BUGS!!?? I can just picture myself all eaten up with bug bites like the people on Survivor this season. Please say it isn't so!
