I was looking forward to the backpack, the bag not so much. Thanks for the warning though. We will have to pack a backpack for Castaway Cay. Maybe they will go back to the backpack by the time we cruise.

Anything else? What is the "experience"? What is the food gift? Any info would be great!
Thanks!!!

I had heard they didn't do the "experiences" any more. Next week is my fist cruise as a Platinum so I will report back what perks there are, if any beyond a free Palo.

They have not offered any "experiences" for quite awhile. This was still the case as of the end of November. Still get free Palo, 10% off most purchases in onboard shops, and choice of in room gift of either: fruit bowl, bottle of wine or box of 5 truffles.

A word about the Platinum choice. We always ask for the sparkling wine and they usually bring a Prosecco or sparkling wine. Last time it was asti spumate - yuck - but we had opened and poured without looking.

I have a backpack but was hoping to give one to my daughter and son-in-law for their first cruise with us in March.
We are just off the Wonder today and got the backpack.

We are sailing on the Magic in a couple of weeks. First time sailing Platinum. How do you get a bottle of wine?

Guest services will call and ask you/leave you a message requesting you to call with your platinum gift choice. It will be delivered to your stateroom. They will give you a choice of selections available for your sailing.

Just off the Dream last Sunday and our bag broke the same way. 3 of the 4 grommets just came off, the first time I tried to use it. It wasn't overloaded. I suspect a quality control issue. I just through mine away before I got home.

Unfortunate so many of them are breaking. I guess DCL likes giving bags and changes so infrequently we are stuck with this for a while

We sailed on the Magic on 12/27-30. We got the new lanyards and new bag. The bag included the mini white board and marker, and highlighter. That was it.

On the second day of having literally nothing on it, the hole broke. Switched it temporarily until were able to get to guest services to another hole, and by the time we go there, another hole broke.

The new lanyards include a small velcro to be able to take them apart without pulling them over your head - nice idea, however, the stitches are of very poor quality and also, after a day, the stitches came apart.

Guest services brought a new one for us, and they noticed it was frayed. They were able to find an older style one in the end.

It was better than I expected from the picture. I actually did use mine on the ship. I still prefer the backpack when off the ship though.

Sailed on the Magic January 10. Used my bag during the cruise and now it's my work tote bag. I like it a lot.

I thought the lanyards were great, and of a much better quality than other free ones you might get at a conference.

Maybe I was just lucky?

My bag broke after a half a days use on an excursion. It's cheaply made unfortunately. I saw a bunch of people whose bags had broken too. I threw it out after trying to repair it because then all of the strap holes eventually broke. I don't like the bag.
