CTI questions for a first timer!!!
We booked an Ocean Jr. Suite for our honeymoon in October. And we have a couple questions...
*Does the Ocean Jr. have BOTH a shower and a tub?? (I have to have my showers!)-if not, how do you request a room with a shower?
*Do you have to make reservations at any of the restaurants? Or can you walk right in and expect a seat right away?
*Sunscreen-how much is enough!?! I never use sunscreen in good ole Iowa (although that has come back to bite me in the butt with a few good sunburns throughout the years). But we are definately going to be using it in paradise because we do NOT want to miss out on anything while being miserable with a burn!
2 spay cans enough for 2 people - 5 days?
Thank you for your help...and I am sure I will think of more. I like to be prepared!!

From the write up and looking at the new panoramic pictures, it's either bath and shower or jacuzzi. I would suggest you e-mail couples or have your TA do it if you booked through a TA.
Reservations for 8 rivers and Bayside can be made at the desk near reception (in the past we have been able to make same day reservations for the late sitting). As far a s sun screen, take a high factor(15). 2 may be enough but the shop has it also, so you can buy more. Take a good aftersun also, you do not want to burn and the sun is strong. 59 days to go, see you there.

8 rivers is the one you do need a reservation too.
2 cans should do it if not you can get more in the gift shop. we live in des moines,ia we stuck with an spf 6 and were fine.
we just celebrated our 10 year anniv. at CTI you might want to check into the private beach dinner it is amazing!!

You will almost always have a shower and from what I've seen they are all the zero edge showers now.
Dinner reservations are only made for Bayside and 8 Rivers.
Sunscreen is a MUST!! The sun is definitely hotter in Jamaica. You will need to bump up your SPF for the first day or so (IMHO) and then go from there. 2 cans is not enough. That stuff doesn't go as far as you think. I would bring three cans a piece if I were you. The breeze tends to carry it away. Also, please do not use it in the room, it makes a nasty film on the tile and is extremely hard to clean up.
You will LOVE CTI. I hope your trip is amazing!!!!

"The breeze tends to carry it away. Also, please do not use it in the room, it makes a nasty film on the tile and is extremely hard to clean up."
On the other hand, if you are using it outside, make sure that it doesn't blow on the couples sitting next to you. I have seen this happen at the pool.
