Personally, I like the backpack better than the red bag. And I already have 6 water bottles (not counting the ones I've given away).
Yep that's the bag... For Europe we found this bag to be much better then a backpack. Keep at your side where you can see it and not on your back.

Thanks for posting that.

Well, this presents a dilemma. Do I bring a backpack or use the one waiting on the bed and if they decide to change it up now, I'll be without the use of a backpack. Hmmm.
Our snacks have always been stale as well. There has been some type of carry bag with the gift since 2005 when they switched from the beach towel. The design has been changed a bit over the years, but you can pretty much count on receiving a bag.

Oh! The first part of my reply is missing??!?! I said I had wanted the blue backpack for my son for school in September and we are on the Med cruise high which looks to have the red bag instead!

Darn! I like the backpack better too! We have one of each & I prefer the backpack over the red bag. I do like the water bottle over the snacks though. I guess I'll get DH to carry it on our Med excursions this time

I also got the blue backpack on the most recent cruise. The spinner keychain broke almost immediately, stabbing me with the pin holding the spinning part and the backpack is tearing after just a few uses. Hope they change gifts SOON!

We have so many backpacks hoping for change too. Wonder if they ever taste the snacks. Not good

Yes, this is the gift we got off the June 1st Magic sailing in the Med too. No snacks and the keychain was the Ships Wheel one, not the spinny thing in the middle.

The Gold gift was a large A5-ish sized notepad & pen in a brown 'leather' wrap around wallet & then a pack of regular DCL themed notelets and envelopes.

If that's different from the norm just shout and I'll grab a picture tonight.

Edit: Ooops, forgot. We also got a luggage strap too.

I think we still have those in the cupboard ... Still as hard as ever. They scared us too much to eat them.

That's what we got on the Dream in January! We didn't get the Chip N Dale snacks--just those rice krispie things! DS doesn't like that sort of stuff and neither do I so neither of us even tried them! The backpack I love though!

Curious, if you do a B2B do they put another backpack in your stateroom?

Yes, when you get back on board, there will be another one waiting for you. (There might be a delay if the first part of the b2b was your first cruise and the second part you are now CC members. For our friends, DCL said they "had to confirm" they were eligible for the lanyards and gifts, even though our friends could show them their KTTW from the first cruise. They got their CC stuff about 3 days into the second cruise.)

On the Magic June 1 we got an ugly red bag. No backpack. I left it on the ship. My luggage was full and I would not use that thing anyway
