The other amenites are an iPod player, fresh lemon water, aromatherapy, special pillows... (I am writing from memory, if I make a mistake feel free to correct me) and close access to the spa.

I love the Solstice ships, but if there is one complaint I have heard from a few people it is tht AQ is not as special as was advertised. If money is not a matter of concern them go for them, but if your budget is tight, then maybe not.
I didn't catch this originally but you got some wrong info on Blu. They are very strict as to who can eat in Blu. We had our room cards and numbers checked. I was not even able to bring a friend with me for dinner as a third person. The suite passengers can eat in Blu when room is available but thats it...
