Letting servers know we won't be attending dinner?

Hi all

We are doing two back 2 back med cruises in the summer and have decided that whilst we will eat in the dining rooms, we will probably only do each menu once over the fortnight (so in effect we would only eat in the dining rooms on 7 out of 14 nights).

Last year we really enjoyed eating at Topsiders and I know that our two boys would much prefer to grab dinner some nights at Plutos Doghouse and stay playing by the pools, or we will get room service and watch a movie. So with this in mind.....

What is the best way to notify our Servers? I was thinking that on the first night I would explain our plans and then let them know that if we are not on time to dinner (we are always on time!) then not to expect us that evening.

I have also requested a four top table on both cruises (I know its just a request), but I thought that would at least help in terms of other table mates sitting and waiting for us.

Or do you think there is a better way for me to handle it?

Many thanks for your thoughts
