Ditto, we would probably because we often stay on the ship on port days or return for lunch. We do not like buffets and are happy our other line of choice serves lunch in several non buffet venues as...

If they are under 18 they may be the only kids on your cruise since Viking discourages them.

Another vote for the over and above Hassler in Rome and the equally wonderful Arts (especially on the club floor) in Barcelona. We never only stay one night anywhere and enjoy the luxury of the ship...
