gold vs. silver?

We just got off the weekend getaway today. We're Silver but traveling with a Gold member, so I don't know what is what. What is the difference between Gold and Silver gifts? I want to know what we should expect for our December Silver cruise.

We got the backpack, key chain, crackers, then later on we got a notebook and pen, and notecards. I saw someone with a black/red round drawstring nylon bag, and someone said that was the silver award. Or was that a few months ago?

We got that on our fourth cruise a year ago last March.

The black and red bag was the last Castaway Club gift and the blue backback is the newest gift. If that is the current gift then you will get it every sailing until they change gifts, you just get "more" gifts as you increase in levels, gold and platinum.

We just got off the Dream and got the backpack and goodies as listed above. We are going again in Oct (so about 4 months later) on the same ship and am wondering if I will get the same thing. Love the backpack but we have so many from conferences we really don't need any more!
The items have not changed each time you sail in the past... Silver level gets whatever silver is getting whether it's your 2nd, 3rd sail...
They do however change up the gift every once in awhile...

example: we sailed in Nov 2011 and go the same sling bag we had gotten before. Then shortly after that, word came out they had changed the gift. We sailed on an MR cruise in April 2012 and got the gift described here with the backpack.

Since they just made this change, it is pretty doubtful they will changed it up again within 4 months, so chances are you will get another backpack

The notebook, pen, and notecards are the additional gold gifts. Silver will get the back pack only. I like the sling bag, but I have 2 of them, happy to be sailing gold in a few months and getting the bac pack.

I like the look of the backpack....when I cruised with my cousin recently I let her have it as I will be getting one on the Fantasy this month.....I was hoping they would go back to the beach towel (pic below)....have a few of them but loved the CC beach towel gift. They could update it with the logo of all 4 ships in the corners. I also liked the black/red tote bag (not the drawstring bag) and the original CC gift of the blue tote bag (pictured below).

I agree with you about the beach towels. We have two of them and still use them all the time. However I want a backpack before they change again.

Are the gifts based on CC level?

I want rice krispie treats!!!! Please....

We were silver last week & thought the lack of water bottles was a bummer. Our mickey goldfish were busted & a mess a crumbs, so that soured us.

We loved all the inaugural cruise gifts: stationery & lithograph.

Homemade rice krispie treats are sooo much better than the shortening/preservative-laden stuff DCL used to give us. (Last time I shoved ours in a neighboring stateroom's fish extender.)

If my goldfish were a crumbly mess, I would've asked the stateroom host for another bag/goldfish.

Lots of DISers have complained about the boring water bottles, so I doubt there will ever be a consensus of what the ideal CC gifts would be.

If you really really want the water bottles, check ebay.

Yes you will receive a silver lanyard. On my DSIS and BIL first cruise they used a set of ours we are gold and folks kept asking how many cruises had they been on!

Does anyone have a picture of the lanyard? Does it come with the cute little anchor on it like the one you buy on the ship?

Does anyone know how often the CC gift is changed? We've given quite a few of our gifts away to first time sailers, so I'm thinking it isn't changed out annually

We were on the Aug. 5 Cruise out of NYC. It was our 8th cruise (Gold) and my sister's 3rd cruise( silver). We both got the same CC gift- the backpack. We loved the backpack and got a lot of use out of it..
