Spray me with a little cruise ship sunscreen, and hurry

Sunscreen machine on Norwegian Dawn

One item from the Norwegian Dawn renovation of 2011 caught me by surprise. It’s a machine on the pool deck that dispenses suntan lotion from a spray nozzle. You get a minute’s worth of sunscreen for $1.

The best part of this new cruise toy, called the Sunscreen Spray Station, is that you won’t have to worry if you forget to pack the suntan lotion at home.

I asked Ivan, the man handing out towels on the Dawn, whether one minute of spray would be enough to protect me from the sun.

How many minutes does a passenger need to buy?

“Depends on how fast you do it,” said Ivan. He said two guys managed to spray each other in a minute, but one woman barely finished her arms in the same period of time.

I’d say that a safe covering of your skin is worth more than saving a dollar. If it takes you two minutes, go for it. As the machine on the deck of Norwegian Dawn says: Apply Early! Apply Enough! Apply Often!
