Hotel meals and beverages during land tour vs. those onboard a river cruise?

On a river cruise in France this spring all onboard meals, snacks and beverages (including alcohol) were included, plentiful and available almost any time. Although I don't eat or drink much, it was a very nice perk. I just booked a land tour in Italy for next year and am curious how meals and beverages at the hotels work and what is included.


  • Thank you all for your detailed replies. I knew we were spoiled on the river cruise by I guess I didn't realize just how much.

    Also special thanks to Claudia and British for lots of other good info I gleaned from your other posts and comments.

  • We aim to serve. I do miss happy hour on the ship.
