New Castaway Club bag

I haven't seen any pictures or postings about this, so if my search-fu missed it, I apologize, but there's a new Castaway Club bag. Here's mine, as I'm silver.

The others were the color of the level -- gold for gold, and black (I think) for platinum. It also came with a magnetic whiteboard with marker for your door!

That's nice. But...seems a bit girly for a gift that should be usable by anyone, doesn't it? I know my husband and son wouldn't want to touch it, even though they have a higher tolerance for tote bags and things like that than many males do.

We got it on the Dream on Sunday. Mine broke on Monday. The ring came out and the rope handle wouldn't stay in place. I was bummed as I really liked the bag

i'm wondering if they are confusing this with the items in their DU gift basket, assuming they received one. thats where we got our white board with marker. I'd be surprised if disney had the same item but who knows.

I've seen a pic of the gold bag. Um, no. That'll definitely be a leave-behind. The magnetic white board is a fabulous thing to have....on cruise lines/ships that don't have Wave phones. LOL! Also seen pics of the photo book thing. Again, not something I would use but a good idea in theory. I imagine figuring out what to gift repeat cruisers isn't an easy job to have. It's nice they do the gifts at all. I don't recall my brother-in-law or mother-in-law who are repeat cruisers on Royal Caribbean saying anything about gifts. I wonder if other cruise lines do this sort of thing at all. Hmmmm...

Wow I got off the Magic on December 8th and still got the backpack...I like this one much better. Hopefully they'll have it for my Wonder cruise in June!

I have seen a lot of mixed reports from cruisers around the same time frame. I wonder if they are replacing the new tote as inventory on the back pack is depleted.
