Bionic Bar (Royal Caribbean) – These two robotic bartenders are the main draw at Royal Caribbean's Bionic Bar. They can mix two drinks in one minute.
Alchemy Bar (Carnival Cruises) – Alchemy Bar isn't your average watering hole. Rather, it's a vintage-themed cocktail "pharmacy." Mixologists (wearing white lab coats) don't serve drinks, they "prescribe" them.
Martini Bar and Crush (Celebrity Cruises) – Celebrity Cruises has a soft spot for showy mixology. At Martini Bar and Crush, bartenders channel their inner Tom Cruise and put on displays straight out of the movie "Cocktail."
Svedka Ice Bar (Norwegian Cruises) – In 2010 Norwegian Cruises debuted the first ice bar at sea, Svedka/Inniskillin Ice Bar. All the tables, chairs, walls and glasses in the bar are made of ice and, with the help of LED lighting, change hue from blue to green to purple (evocative of the real northern lights).
The Rising Tide Bar (Royal Caribbean) – Royal Caribbean has made it OK to get drunk in an elevator. The Rising Tide Bar, available on Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas, is a 32-seat cocktail joint that moves between floors.
Planet Bar (P&O Cruises) – Planet Bar features a floor-to-ceiling audiovisual wall that displays some of the world's most striking settings, from fireworks above Sydney Harbour Bridge to a sunset above the Sahara Desert.
Glass House (P&O Cruises) – P&O's bar Glass House allows passengers on board its Aurora, Azura, Britannia or Ventura ships to enjoy vintage wines -- handpicked by celebrity sommelier Olly Smith -- by the glass. Patrons don't have to stick to one bottle thanks to a unique Enomatic storage system.
Chocolate Journeys (Princess Cruises) – Princess Cruises has teamed up with celebrity chocolatier Norman Love to create an array of boozy chocolate delectables, available across their entire fleet. The Dirty Piglet, for instance, is made with Maker's Mark bourbon and vanilla ice cream then garnished with chocolate-dipped bacon.
Champagne and Caviar Splash (SeaDream) – Less of a cruise, more of a luxury yachting experience, SeaDream offers its guests a sumptuous farewell beachside barbecue. The meat is served poolside on bone china while guests can fill up on caviar and champagne served on a surfboard.
