Hi Lexy,you are right about the Sun Protection Factor 30. Anything over 30 is a marketing tool to sale what people will think is better. I own tanning salons and can tell you that SPF 30 applied every hr or so will be fine. You will need to limit your exsposure time and reapply if you sweat or get wet. I always reccomend that you do indoor tanning for 4 weeks leading up to your trip as a safeguard against sunburn. The reason you see so many burned on cruises is the cool caribbean salt/wind factor, it doesnt let you feel the burn to its to late.
