Just a small reminder about sunscreen. On carnival.com under the description of excursions involving snorkeling and scuba diving, only biodegradable sunscreen is allowed to be used due to reef damage caused by normal sunscreen. I don't know what brand it is, but I'll buy some before I go, even if I just go swimming near a reef.

SuzyCruise,

Would you please post a link to that page on Carnival.com ?

Thanks,
Dwayne

Not sure of the brands but there are a few that are biodegradable. It will say so on the tube or bottle.

Bullfrog SPF 30 with built in insect repellent and is waterproof. Virtually impossible to wash off. You will still get a dark tan.
I use a Clinique 15 spf on my face.

Mike, Jones Beach, huh? Do you still have to get there at 5 a.m. to claim a spot on that beach? It should be re-named Sardine Beach.

Carnival does not have any sunscreen rules. The rules are put in place by local authorities assigned to protect the reefs. This link shows some of those excursions... sunscreen requirements

Now I have to add biodegradable sunscreen to my list of things not to forget when getting off a ship in port. Let's see... sunglasses, biodegradable sunscreen, towel, identification, excursion ticket, and, oh yeah, a big sandwich.

IslandCruz -- per your request:

http://www.carnival.com/ShoreExcursionDetails.aspx?port...excursioncode=30 4033

I found the info on carnival.com. I realize this is not Carnival's rule. But, that doesn't lessen its validity.

They actually do make sunscreen to protect against Jellyfish stings. It is called Safe Sea. I have been using it for several years. I have an older bottle and it does not say about being biodegradable though. Click here.
