well from what i can see you get your own special dining room called blu and it's like a specialty dining room where the food is cooked to order. supposedly you have to make a reservation if you want to eat in the main dining room with us peons.

That's the part I wanted to know - so we're "forced" to Blu and have to make reservations for main dining room? scratch I'm not sure I like that...

Hi Nick,
I've done it twice. It is the same as a regular concierge class cabin 194 square feet and a 42 sq ft balcony(the larger balconies are on the angled humps) all of which are on the penthouse deck with some suites on deck 11. You are assigned to the speciality restaurant Blu(which is inluded in the price of the room) but you can switch to the main dining room if you want. We also paid the upcharge and dined in some of the other speciality restaurants on other evenings. We got a pitcher of specialty teas every day, and basically unlimited bottled water every day. It has a Hansgrohe shower panel in the shower, and you get to use the steam, relaxation and sauna rooms for free. You also get priority booking for all spa appointments(time wise), and nicer towels and robes to use in the rooms than regular cabins. All of the cabins are located on the penthouse deck, and will only contain 2 people in a cabin. There is a separate entrance on the front of deck 11 that will lead to the spa area and separate spa booking desk. When I went before, there wasn't much of a difference in price between the Concierge class 1 price and aquaspa.

I posted a link to my Sosltice pictures under Celebrity, if you want to see what the cabin and ship looked like. Have a good afternoon,
Kelcie

Nick and Pat,
Blu isn't healthy eating, they did serve lobster and steak, it's more of a lighter sauce cuisine. I've got a link to some of the menus before. I'll try and find it for you.

i am on the phone with celebrity. this is what she said: aqua class eats in blu which is like a specialty dining room. if you are not in aqua class you can TRY to make a reservation and pay the extra $30 per person but it may be doubtful you can get in. if you are in aqua class you will have to make a reservation in the main dining room if you want to eat with the peons but that is not guaranteed either. you do get to go to the spa/steam room/persian gardens relation rooms for free. that's the deal according to the certified travel planner from celebrity.

kelcie - that woman told me you can't change to the main dining room - you can only try to make a reservation for that night. see they don't always know what they're talking about. you need someone who has actually done it.

Pat,
We had no problem switching to eat in the main dining room with our friends. Lots of people wanted to try Blu, and the other speciality restaurants,so there will always be empty seats in the main dining room. Now as to which table you get to sit with, that's another question!
