After reading all the comments, just an idea, I will suggest on my next meet thread. Why not bring your unwanted gifts to your dis meet and trade or give the unwanted items. Seems like many people have different likes and dislikes. Something fun for the kids to do while socializing.

Thanks for posting the pics! Jill
The 2006 bag is my favorite too...I was hoping they would bring back one similar to that one....I use mine LOTS!!! Although I am excited about the backpack. The newest red bag wasn't my favorite style, but I love anything that shows my DCL love. I like your idea about bring the extra items and trading... I used one keychain and saved the rest..gotta have back ups

Crispie Treats .
It was nice to have a sweet treat at bed-time, without having to order something. Replacing a sweet with a salty - not cool.
But the snacks will still get eaten.

Ditto on the red bags!

The snacks will be good to take to the movies!

Do other cruise lines give return gifts like DCL?

On our second Princess cruise we were given one of those 0.99 cloth style grocery bags with their logo on it as a return gift

We have always been impressed with DCL's return gifts and am excited to hear that they have changed it up a bit!

We have been on 4 princess and got NADA! They do give you extra OBC if you pre-book your cruise while still on your cruise. I do like them, but I'm excited to be taking our second Disney cruise.

Most other cruise lines do not. RCI used to but have not been on them in many years. After 5 cruises on Carnival you get a lapel pin.

Love the backpack and glad to have a healthy-ish snack to give to DD (if I don't eat them all with my beer!) - she'll have PLENTY of sweets after a week on the Fantasy. Looking forward to my first CC gifts!

I wonder if it is like the backpack I bought at WDW...
It was one of those specials where you spend so much and you can buy the backpack at a "cheap" price. It is a nice bag.

Oh my god, I LOVE that new backpack! Can't wait to get on the DREAM on Sunday .....
DB is a huge fan of backpacks and we were looking for a DCL one on our last cruise!

If no one has posted Gold gifts until then I promise we will!

Based on the above answers, I guess things have changed with Princess We have not sailed them in several years, but they used to give gifts. I know we got beach towels once and bags once.

We have only sailed RCI twice. On our second sailing they gave messenger bags to the kids as return cruisers and the adults got coupon booklets which were a little hokey, but there WERE some good things in there and a couple of freebies (though I can;t recall what at the moment).

I think it was Celebrity that did a bag of laundry per cabin as a perk (a fabulous one I might add).

Essentially, from what i have seen, other lines offer more in the way of "service" type perks (cocktail lounges only for loyal customers, special seating at shows, priority embarkation, free internet or free laundry, etc) but not so much in the way of a physical gift. DCL does the physical gits and rebooking incentives (that I think everyone does) but not much else (no internet, photo or laundry deals, no lounges, etc) and I think every line does a party for repeat guests.

The new blue bag does look like the ABD bags (green). I love those ABD bags and use them as my 'purse' when traveling on a plane. They hold a lot of stuff.

Can't wait to get a blue one.

We have 2 cabins that are cruising for the first time, they do not get gifts correct?
