Took the train from Cleveland to Fort Lauderdale in a sleeper. Spend the night at the Ramada Inn at SR84 and I 95. They took to the cruise port the next day. We arrived at 12:45 PM and were checked in within 30 minutes at the Aqua Class desk. Dropped our bags in the room and went up to the Buffet for lunch. We ate breakfast and dinner in Blu on all days but one. We noted that service was spotty in Blu and the menu was not as good as we enjoyed last year on the Constellation. We had my birthday in the Tuscan Grill and enjoyed every bite. We had lunch in the main dining room on sea days and at the buffet when in port. We had drinks at the Ensemble lounge before and after dinner and some drinks during the day at the Mast bar with our drink package. I booked a A2 guarantee and they put us in cabin 1505 which is about as far from Blu and you can get. This was very hard on my wife who has a walking problem. Also the ladies room is quite a hike from Blu which put a damper on my wife's dinner on several nights. I will never again book a guarantee cabin. I bought an I pad mini on board for my birthday and some T shirts for the wife from ports we visited. Enjoyed the ship, but I'm not sure I will book and Aqua class cabin on a Solstice class ship again due to problems we encountered. Disembarkation went well and we were back at the Ramada Inn at SR84 and I 95 around noon. We had lunch and dinner there and Took the train from Fort Lauderdale to Cleveland in a sleeper the next day. We are Elite + members and have to more cruises on Celebrity booked in a suite.
