in-room gift Entertainment Bundle

I thought I'd surprise my DS with an in-room gift on our upcoming cruise. I was looking at the Entertainment Bundle, (back pack and speaker). Back pack looks nice in the picture, can anyone give me a firsthand review if you have gotten it. Is it a good quality back pack? (is it more like the material of a school back pack, or is it more like the nylon drawstring back pack?) I hope you understand what i'm talking about. Any pictures you have of it would be appreciated. Thanks for your help.

Here is a review of the backpack from the Family Fun pack. It looks like the same backpack.

Only the Castaway Club sailors get lanyards, at check in. There will be one backpack in the room, no matter how many Castaway Club members are in that room.

On a recent sailing, 2 of us were returning, so we got 2 lanyards (and DD#2 did NOT get one) and one backpack.

We got the entertainment pack a couple of years ago. Looking at the order form now, it looks like the bundle has changed a bit. It used to also have the round water-proof cards and card holders. The backpack material is more like a school backpack than the drawstring type. As other posters have said, the bag is a bit on the small side and made worse by being narrower at the top. Definitey not good for a school backpack, but it is made fairly well and has plenty of space for vacationing around with. The speakers are decent. You can probably find the exact same speakers (without the DCL logo) in the mall for about $7 or less.
