Default Suntan Lotion

Here's perhaps a stupid question, my girlfriend and I are doing a Western Carribean cruise during this coming Christmas. I burn very easily and we have many excursions selected. What is the best thing for me to do? What kind of suntan lotion?????

Having been on a lot of cruises, and also someone who burns easily, I would recommend Bullfrog gel formula. It is SPF 30. The gel is great is it dries right away, with no greasiness so sand, etc. does not stick to you, and it is waterproof.

Also, don't forget to wear a hat (one with a wide brim would be preferred plus it should be cotton not straw. Before you even get dressed in the morning, apply SPF # 30 to your body; ears, neck, back of hands, etc. The sun can be quite hot in Cozumel, so don't plan a beach day and when in the water do wear a t-shirt. Enjoy yourself.

Bon Voyage
