Mick and I are getting married on the WBTA next year and his surname is Savage, imagine that For our future sailings ... The Savage Family!!!

His grandchildren are coming too and they have different surnames, so the suggestion of using Princesses XX and XX with their entourage is great. Will definitely be writing something down to give to the CM on our arrival to make it easier.

We'll have Joa and Mick with the wedding party and then a special Princess one for the grandchildren. Can't wait!

The CM's did not but the another family did as we entered. I am not annoyed with it but it is 'old' for us at this point. It's funny, now when it happens it kind of dates the person. The younger people in any group this happens in, look kind of confused. So for my children, this experience will probably be mute.

I think Ill go as her Royal Highness... but I am not telling DH
I could see how the Adams family joke can get old. My kids both have names that are aparently from old western movies(I had no idea) and ppl constantly make remarks- yeah, yeah I get it ha ha. Mostly its older men that mention it but ods name, I get many comments.

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!!!!
Minnie Mouse was reboarding the ship in front of us last week and I made a comment about the fact that she was boarding. When she walked on, they announced "... would like to welcome the Mouse family." I thought it was funny. We just gave our regular last name.

You could always use some famous person's name... Bieber... Kardashian... Etc. just tell them what you'd like!

Since my next cruise will be my honeymoon, I will use my NEW name! So excited!

We were the "Never getting off the boat 'cause now we're broke" family! As long as it is not offensive I think they will say whatever you would like!

When is the last time folks did this? I remember reading a post from 2012 and a couple people said they were told they were no longer doing the "silly" thing. When they tried to give something funny, they were told, no, what is your REAL last time. We only tried to be creative once, and they messed it up So we stick with our original last name...SMITH
