Unlike room service that’s offered 24/7 on nearly every ocean cruise ship, room service on a river cruise is almost nil. But, there is one meal that is gaining availability; breakfast.
Depending upon the stateroom category and of course the cruise line, you may be able to order a continental or even a full breakfast to enjoy in your upper-category stateroom or suite.
