I like the Chip&Dale snacks but personally, LOVED the red bag they were giving out before. Yes, I have 4 of them, but the blue backpack is cheap and it cut up my fingers badly (the zippers were defective) and it doesn't really hold too much. The red bag I used as a stroller bag and hung it nicely off my MacLaren. It was nice to have a change, but the quality of the red bag is just better. Just my 2 cents

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!

On the second night, in January, I got a box of DCL note paper with envelopes. I guess that was the gold gift! Very nice!

We got stationary, a luggage strap and 10% off select merchandise in the gift shops when we sailed as Gold CC in Dec '11.

We have 3 different Castaway Cay Bags we have cruised 2009, 2011 and 2012 so i guess they changed what they were giving after our 2011 since we got the blue back pack on the 2012 cruise.

We loved that red and black bag too, and still use it all summer for taking to baseball tournaments. The backpack doesn't look nearly as nice.

A beach towel would be great too!

We are new to the Castaway Club since last year was our first cruise. We're sailing again in May - does each person in our party get the Silver gift, or is it one per family?

So a nice perk for us having our DS5 booked in with his grandfather is that we will get one gift per cabin (2 gifts) instead of just one if he were booked into our cabin and my father alone.
good to know

I don't care for one for DH and I but I have 3 kids and if we get only one per stateroom, my kids will be fighting over them. Is is possible to get a extra one or should I call them directly. We are a family of 5 in two staterooms???

Nope there isn't a way that you get an extra one.
They sell backpacks with gifts in the giftselection on the website but that are different backpacks...

As long as there is one CC member in each room, you will get 2 gifts. Maybe this is a good time to point out that the gifts are for Mom & Dad (since there are only 2).
