I agree about the backpack, much more practical and based on how big or small it is will hopefully use it other places. The red bags were awkward to carry and we have only really used them for Castaway Cay and once in a while to go to our community pool.

I am interested to see what the extra stuff for gold and platinum is.

I think the new bag is great. As I always say if it's free it's for me!

I'm curious on the Gold level too! We leave in 19 days and it's our first Gold Level cruise! Can't wait! I'm more excited - I LOVE the backpack vs. the tote bag! Honestly, we do not need any more water bottles!

We missed this by one cruise. Looking forward to receiving the new gift in June!

I think the backpacks will get a lot more use, and with the logo, that's actually freebie advertising for DCL.

For those who are looking for extras, just keep your ears open -- someone who sails often will have more than they need and might offer to give you the extra so they won't have to take up space in their luggage.

And as PP has mentioned, there's always ebay. Last year on the Panama Canal cruise they had limited edition pins that people were literally waiting in line for hours to get, and there were a bunch of disgruntled passengers when DCL didn't provide enough. Poor marketing strategy when DCL coulda shoulda done a pre-order, but.... Anyway, less than a month after the cruise, a complete set of the coveted pins appeared on ebay, for the onboard price.

I love homemade RK treats made with butter, but the commercially made stuff is usually loaded with shortening so it tastes totally bleh. IMHO.

It is ONE PER ROOM. We've taken 9 cruises and three in a room and have never each gotten a gift. Just one per room. If you have two staterooms with two people in each, still only one per room -- but only if the other stateroom has a returning guest.

I love the look of the backpack. I have always been grateful to get anything and love the anticipation of opening the stateroom door and seeing what is waiting for us on the bed. I know that gold and platinum get extras throughout the cruise. Last time we got a Disney Dream blanket plus a litograph. On the Med in 2007 we got leather document wallets. I'm taking our red/black Disney bag on our HAL cruise to Alaska in May!

You will get this new gift and something extra for you for Gold cruise.

We were Gold a few weeks ago for the first time and got stationary cards with the ship on it and a suit case strap thing and a black leather ? travel wallet to put your passports and credit cards in.. Took us a while to figure out what the strap was for... It was a nice surprise to get this extra gift, it didn't come with the CC gift it came on another night.

Good! I really hated the drawstring beach bag. We will get use out of the backpack. The rice crispy treats were getting kind of old, and I think they would be the only thing to survive a nuclear war. (other than twinkies)

Now if we could get them to bring back the blankets!

I wonder what the extra gift for platimun guests will be?

I will be excited to get "any" thank you gift when we cruise this time (our 2nd) on DCL. We have cruised repeatedly with Princess and never got any kind of a welcome back or thank you gift. I think it is nice that they acknowledge you are a return guest.

YES!!

We did a b2b in November/December and received a CC gift at the beginning of each cruise!! And as a matter of fact- DH just flew to San Diego and back and one of the two carry-on pieces that he took with him was the red and black CC tote. Worked great for what he wanted it for......

Are the new bags fleet wide now? Sailing on the Wonder in 2 weeks. Was not going to pack my red bag since I would get a new one. Love the chip and dale stuff.
