Every Carnival and Celebrity cruise I've sailed that went to STT docked at Havensight. Maybe a dozen times or more?

You can walk to the Sky Ride in 5 minutes after you exit the ship.

The worst part about cruising solo with Carnival and a few other lines is that I have to pay full fare for the person who isn't there and get none of the credit for those sea days.

In this class, I think only the Glory has retained the hot tub in the spa. The other 3 (Valor, Conquest and Freedom) have converted that space to a cycling and/or pilates class.

When I book airfare, the price I pay at the time of booking remains the price I have paid by the time I fly. If there is a fare drop, I can't call my airline and ask for credit.

From the pictures you posted, it looks like you went to Caye Caulker.
