We can attempt to change once we are on board, but when making the initial reservation in AQ Blu is your restaurant (unless you opt to reserve the other specialty restaurants some nights).
Just curious - - Why would you want to dine in the MDR instead of Blu? We were on the Solstice last week and really enjoyed Blu.
FYI - - It cost us $200 total to upgrade from a CC2 cabin to AQ; the best $200 I ever spent!
