I want the beach towel gift. I have a use for a towel not so much for a bookbag.

Does anyone know if the current backpack gift has double zippers? I am wondering if I can lock the bag closed by stringing a wire lock through two zippers. Thanks!

I like the backpack, but miss the water bottles. The kids wouldn't even eat the rice krispy sandals from previous cruise, and my Mickey goldfish were crushed. Hope they get it right. Would love the towel and tote bag from previous years.

I'm excited. DH and I are both in desperate need of new backpacks (which we really only use when travelling) so this will be perfect (I'll just have to convince him to book another cruise so we can both have backpacks)

We love our backpack and use it much more than the drawstring bag.

Lanyards when you check in; backpacks in your room.

We just returned from the 4 night Dream and there was a DCL key ring as well as the backpack, pretzels and Mickey goldfish. I was not expecting the key ring-it was a nice surprise.

I'm another person who'd like to see the beach towel return as a cc gift. I have 5, and they are of great quality and have held up to constant use over the 10 years since I received the first one.

There was also a bit of a change in gift for Gold Members. We got the backpack/keychain/snacks, but also a very nice black zippered travel document case (previously it was reported that the item was a Journal type book with pen), luggage strap(very attractive and sturdy) and Castaway club note cards. Loved the travel doc case. I've actually been looking for something exactly like it.

I'm happy to dance with you
I have 2 opinions
We had tried usual things to keep them away, including something like coyote urine, it is sold in hardware stores by us

I would love a Beach Towel. We got 2 from the DVC member cruise in '05, not from DCL, but DVC and they are great, so I'm thinking DCL would have good ones too!

I'm gold on the next cruise, in January!

I wish they had some choices you could make. We did a cruise and got our backpacks. We now have a B2B booked and I am assuming with the timing it will mean we probably will again get backpacks...umm, great thought but I don't need 8 more backpacks! I can't even transport that many
