It looks a lot like the ABD backpacks, which is really great. It holds quite a bit.

I agree. When we were on the Dream earlier this month, we were told they'd soon be changing some of the CC gifts, but they didn't know exactly when. I'm glad for the change since we sail again in April. I've had about 5 of the red & black bags and contents. Gave the last 4 away. I'm with you about those Rice Krispie frosted flip-flops ... too gross looking for me to even try. Since I'm a Chip 'n' Dale fan, I'm glad to see something Chip 'n' Dale included now, even though I probably won't eat that either.

It would be nice if they change the Platinum gifts also, but if they don't, no problem!

If you had never gotten the old stuff...maybe someone on here has some extras they could give you.
I didn't say they had to give me or any return cruiser any gift. I am entitled to an opinion. And last time I checked, I was entitled to voice it here, just like everyone else. I have seen several other posts on this thread of people who liked the rice krispie treats too. and another poster who Posted very boldly that they were looking forward to the water bottle but you don't seem to be criticizing their post?? I personally did not find the water bottles to be crappy. We liked them. One of ours got lost and so now we only have 3 for a family of 4 and we were looking forward to being able to replace it this year so that everyone had one again. Excuse me for NOT agreeing with you. You are entitled to your opinion. I am entitled to mine. I think that they are slowly decreasing the gift and probably will continue to do so. It is their prerogative to do as they see fit/want.

I think people need to be a little bit more open in allowing people to voice their individual opinions. Lets all be Disney-like and not pass judgments nor blast someone for what they have to say.

Just my opinion but I think some of us might try to be a little bit nicer towards other peoples postings.

Happy Cruising to all!!!

There is a set of water bottles listed on eBay right now! I just saw them listed and thought I would let you know.

Happy Sailing!!!

I'll admit that I liked the RC treats but I always wound up with a year's supply (who am I kidding, a day's supply) after everyone else passed theirs on to me. And here I thought they were just being nice.

While I'll miss my sugar treats, I'm glad that their changing it up - new things to dislike! Er, like. The backpack looks great and while I really like the red duffle - once again I was the recipient of others'. Same with the water bottle, now that I think about it ... hm. For one of the people I last cruised with, it was because she had a full set of all the items and who needs waterbottle #9? I mean, you can only have so many waiting in your fridge. Unless you've got a bunch of teens but that's really planning for the rare guest. So new toys!

I do hope they keep switching it up every couple years or so. After all, most of the people getting these are regular cruisers and even if you don't like the new, it's better than getting another bag you like but don't need because you've got a dozen already. And both work as cheap presents to those left behind. Or ebay.

Oh man..if I were any good about going to the post office, I would send you ours that we don't use..we have extra of the clear and the white ones. I would ask your next cruise meet thread..i would certainly be willing to bring mine for you, if we were on the same cruise.

I am totally looking forward to the backpack!!

I apologize to you if you thought I was rude in my response to the other poster, but EVERY time that poster and I end up on the same thread, that poster is 'picking' on someone about something they posted. I'm not one to go back and research someone's old posts, but I have yet to see that poster offer someone some helpful advice or make a positive comment. I'm not saying they haven't, but I've not seen it. I've only see a 'bully' side to them. And frankly, I'm tired of it, and I'm not going to fall victim to their bully tactics and comments.
Most members here are wonderful and kind and want to help...but every once in awhile there is a

I have quite a few extra white water bottles. If this is the style you are looking for, I would be more than happy to send one to you.
