Default What is a wet bar for?

I am booked in an owners suite and read in one of the room descriptions that it includes a wet bar. While I haven't cruised in a while I do remember that alcohol cannot be brought on the ship and if you purchase it in port or on ship, the bottle(s) will not be delivered to your stateroom until the end of the cruise. So, my questions is how are passengers using the wet bar?

A wetbar ususally means u have a frig or sink and faucet available for making drinks. If you have a wetbar at home you normally have a three or four seat bar; behind the bar is a sink and faucet. U can wash glasses etc, using the sink. On ships a wetbar usually means a small setup of wine, beer, and a filled ice bucket for making and mixing drinks or sodas.

Here is a link to a pic of a RCCL "wet bar", which is actually a dry bar, since there is no sink. They will cater parties in your suite, and serve liquor from your bar. I believe there is also a fridge with some beer/wine in it. Not sure though.

Yeah...but with what...water and coke? When I think of a wet bar I think of a selection of bottled alcohol and juice/sodas which you can mix to your liking. I don't know how you can get that on a cruise ship when you can't get a bottle of vodka or rum into your room.

Thanks for all the answers, though.

You can buy bottles of alcohol from the cruisecompany and put it in your bar!

I have always thought that a "wet bar" is a bar which is located in or very close to a pool so that you sit on chairs in the pool by the bar but I guess I have been wrong!

the "wet bar" is designed for your convenience when hosting a cocktail party, simply tell your butler what you would like the bar stocked with and if you would like a bartender. You will have to pay for the alcohol and mixers, there should be a bar menu with prices in your suite.
