I remember at captain's cocktails a lot of us used to assume posh names to impress the passengers, we had Rupert, Tarquin, Sebastian, etc. Some of the waps joined in too, Tabatha, Jemima, Hortence, etc. Anyone else get up to this? and what names did you go by?
On UK cruises as very few "Southern Punters" had any idea where Barrow was, I used to say I lived in the "Lake District".
Aussie cruising it was just "near Manchester" as your average Aussie has no idea of English geography or any thing else really.
