We're sailing concierge on the Fantasy this summer. DH and I. DD (different last name) DD's best friend. (so another different last name).

I'm considering the "Flipping Broke" family.

My daughter loved this!! I didn't even remember that they had announced us on our first cruise. When we booked the next cruise, the very first thing she asked was if they were going to say our name and clap again. It took me a minute to remember what she was talking about.

Great ideas about changing it to sound better. I am not creative enough to think of that on my own.

I would definitely change it if I had Manson as my last name.

I had ours in my pocket on a piece of paper so they could just read it. We were
"Princesses Rio and Sydney and their humble servants" After all, it was for the girls and their parents and grandparents were there to serve them

They were happy to do it...I just walked in behind them (it was their trip anyway, I was just there to pay )

Who did you tell? My DS and I have different last names, legally I never changed mine but I'd like to use his last name which the name I use except for taxes and travel.

As you walk on the ship, they just ask you and you can tell them any name you like - Brad Pitt and family; the Teddy Rooseveldt family, the Happy family. I've been quite impressed that they don't seem to mangle the names too badly.

Well instead of the Adams Family you could say you are the Munsters.

Very funny! Yes, we hear the finger clicks all the time when Adams Family is said. And laughs too…but that's ok, I really don't care. But…was trying to think of something different to say possibly this time. I've enjoyed reading everyone's comments thus far!

I'm going to use that next year when our group will have 4 different last names and 9 people.

I like the whole snapping of the fingers idea LOL. Totally kidding. I completely sympathize with you. We are doing our first Disney cruise this summer and I am dreading the sound of "The Forkin Family" -- But what do I do? I just smile, laugh and join the fun! What else?

We've been the Doofenschmirtz family. I'm not sure I spelled that right. Kids loved it.

I read once..many years ago about there being funny names given. Does anyone know any or have any suggestions? Thanks! We sail in 9 days!!!!
That's funny, we have the same last name and feel the same way too! Very tired of how everyone breaks into the Adams Family 'song' too.
