Me neither but would if I were pregnant ...being way past that possibility, I will use the old Avon Skin so Soft which is now sold with insect spray.  We used it for noseeums years ago and it worked terrific.

I just booked the Vista out of Miami at the end of April.   I may get some of the bug replant bracelets for that trip,  but I'm still going to go.

It is not just the pregnant or those wishing to be pregnant that need worry about zika Older individuals as well need to be careful and take precautions. Zika has been tied to a number of neurological disorders. There is a reasonable amount of evidence tying it to various autoimmune disorders affecting the nervous system. I was not overly concerned about this myself but my wife was concerned about this so we changed our cruise a number of months ago from a 10 day Caribbean in January to a 7 day Bermuda cruise in May since Bermuda seems to be zika free at this point.
