The benefits are listed on Celebrity's website. In addition there are numerous threads on this forum that talk about Blu, the Aqua Class dedicated restaurant, Concierge vs. Aqua, etc. Sit down with a cup of coffee and have a nice long read through the forum and all shall be revealed.

It depends of course on where you are upgrading from. You get all the Concierge benefits plus those of Blu. Many of the benefits are superficial or available to everyone on the ship. Most will tell you the main benefit is Blu which is a restaurant reserved for AQ patrons. Suites can eat there on a space available basis but priority goes to those in AQ cabins. Blu in my opinion and from my experience is like eating in a specialty restaurant every night. Of course some do not like it and there opinion is just as good as anyone elses. Check the Celebrity web site for the benefits of Concierge and Aqua Class.

Here's a link to the stateroom area of the Celebrity web site..

Thanks for all the replies and links to information. We've been on a number of Celebrity ships ... but never in Aqua class. For those that have - if we meet someone on-board and would like them to dine with us in Blu (us being in AC and them not) can we invite them to dine with us?

Nope, unless they are dining in a suite.

Mike is right and this is one thing that Celebrity is very strict about.

Don't forget also that Blu is open for an excellent breakfast, closed for lunch though.
