If you are into spa/massage, etc it's possibly worthwhile..WE just had one and there were always great toiletries, huge soft towels and one of the other items b eside the package with slippers, etc.. was a pitcher of herbal tea. Of course you have acess into the meditation/relaxation rooms. oh yes. the Blu restaurant..where the service was far better than the MDR.. with many healthy choice items on the menu... that made it worthwhile for us.

The actual cabin is the same as the rest.

The main advantages to having an AQ cabin IMO are: 1) dining in Blu, 2) free access to The Persian Gardens, and 3) receiving two cruise credits for a 1-week cruise. The value of the in-cabin perks were less important to us.

Are the AQ amenites "worth it?" It all depends on each person likes and dislikes, and to the costs of an AQ cabin vs. what other cabins classes you are considering. For us, we upgraded from an already booked CC2 cabin to AQ for $200; well worth it to us.

Probably, handicapped cabins that I have seen are big especially the bathrooms.

I have had an AQ cabin and just got a fabulous upgrade for one on my upcoming cruise...The extra cost is worth it just for Blu and they do not only have healthy foods. There are three everynight items on the menu and the menu is totally different than the MDR. They also serve a great breakfast. Another minor perk which can add up is free water, our attendent just replaced ours as we took them so we didn't have a limit.

Also, in discussing cabins, there are some on the hump area that have huge verandas. I was lucky enough to get it and the veranda is about 9 x12'.

Didn't realize the water in the refrigerator was "FREE". There was less stress in the Blu dining room but I have to tell you we did have a humungus cabin.. and for $29.00 more each.

Good for you, I had the same thing happen on my Aug. 22 cruise. We went from an inside to an AQ for $150.00 pp.
