The new bag is not very good. The rope handles pull out easily. Everyone I talked to on our cruise didnt like them.

Can't decide whether we'd prefer another backpack or the new bag. Guess we'll wait and see what's on the Wonder!

As much as I was looking forward to a new castaway club member bag or gift I'm not impressed with this bag. At this point I still prefer the backpack.

The magnetic board sounds great, but the bags falling apart does not, and the bag looks cheap too. Maybe DCL is trying to save money? Also we are entering gold status on our next cruise but I can't imagine the gold looking very nice or wearing well. This so surprising as we have loved the last couple CC gifts we received - the backpack, the round red/black tote, and the red/black shoulder bag. The backpack has been our favorite. We use them a lot for hauling snacks & blankets & other gear to the kids' baseball games all summer.

One thing I will not miss is those Mickey crackers, they were not a hit with our family.

Another backpack in a different design would be great, or I would love to see a messenger style bag with a sleeve/pocket for a tablet.

So I guess this means that gold and platinum do not receive an additional gift, just a different colored tote?

Not impressed at all. Most likely will just leave ours behind when the cruise ends.

I think it will look great in black (for the platinum cruisers) and is ok in the silver for those cruisers. But I cannot imagine what the gold is going to look like, and that's what I am. Guess I'll have to wait and see, but not hopeful on this one.

Oh, btw...there was a previous report a couple months ago about a new style for the lanyards. Is that actually the case, and if so do you have a picture of that also? TIA!

Personally I liked the bag. Haven't had any problems with it. Agree that it is a little girly, so I now have 3 from our grandpa traveling companions. Also recieved a DCL flash drive which was nice to have to share our photos with each other at the end of the cruise.

On my recent 12/5 Dream cruise, I was Gold so I didn't receive the new lanyard but my friend did (therefore I don't have it to take a pic of). It's like a silk-y version of the old one and definitely a lot softer. It's more of a slick material, not the hard, scratchy material as the other ones.
