Default Problems with Mystic spray tan and swimming pools on cruise?

Hi - has anyone gotten the Mystic spray tan before cruising? I'd love to get it, but I heard it can fade/streak if you go in saltwater. I know the pools on ship are seawater, so has anyone had any experience with this?

Thanks!

One of my friends got it done before her cruise. She went on the Holiday, but hers streaked like really bad. So she just soaked in the pool for like 2 hours and it finally came off. She was soo ticked. but its just up to whether you really wanna look tan for your cruise because the tan itself the day after you get it done you look soooo dark. Mine have always turned out fine but I didnt have contact with salt water either.

my friend got it right before our last cruise, and the salt water made it really splotchy. she was naturally really tan, so she just scrubbed her skin until the stuff faded a little and it was fine. i'm really pale, so i just used gradual tan lotion (because if it had started streaking on my skin, i would have looked like a tiger or something!) but the lotion worked well for me

I've never gotten a spray tan before a cruise because I usually just tan before I go because I'm so pale that if I don't I'll get sun poisoning.

BUT, last year for homecoming I got a spray tan and it was awful (at least for me), it looked really good for a few days but then I got all splochie, even with scrubbing. It was really weird. And the orange got all over my clothes the first couple days.

then you get skin cancer.
i personally hate spray tans/tanning beds because 1-spray tans make you look like an oompa loompa, like this and 2- tanning beds make you burn and causes skin cancer, like this
just get tanwhile your on your cruise...

Thanks for the comments. Was it the "Mystic" tan everyone had problems with or another brand? I heard Mystic was supposed to solve all the blotchy problems.

Tanning beds aren't an option for me - my dad had melanoma, and it's like hereditary!

I used the Mystic at Palm Beach Tan & so did my friend that went on the cruise. so yea. My spray tan turned out awesome. but if you get in salt water it does splotch. and as far as getting skin cancer from tanning beds you can get it from the sun too if you spend all day to try and tan..

i got a spray tan last year before my cruise.
badddd idea. when you put sunscreen on and layout and then go in the pool/ or ocean it looks really weird. plus if you tan on top of it you get this akward orangy real tan which looks kinda odd.
