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.
Not sure what ship you're on,but we had an OS on the Mariner........and we had parties in it............We bought wine ahead of time to have in the cabin,plus my friends brought some too..............did order cheese platters and other finger foods(at a cost) from the concierge ahead of time..........
We did not have beer or wine in a frig.........

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.
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.
