Ours broke before we disembarked the ship so my fiancé redid the strap in another hole, then the next day another hole broke when we were at Hollywood Studios so she redid that one. The next night when we were packing to go home a third one broke so it ended up in the garbage at the All Star Music. We liked the bag but it was made too cheaply.

Oooh, I like that bag. No cruise booked atm, but hopefully, it'll stay long enough that we can get one. (And hope the holes stay intact.)

I'd have to say this is my least favorite of the CC gifts. I'd rather have a beach towel.

Man these bags are so cheap. Unbelievable. Mine broke while walking through the airport to our return flight home yesterday. I found out that my brother's bag broke as well. Same issue with the metal grommets popping out, rendering the bag totally useless. I had to carry it like a baby the rest of the way home.

I just sent an email to DCL to complain about this. I'm going to follow-up and reference this thread too.

China.
September 2013.

per the tag

I've been afraid to use mine. Not that I really like it anyway. Backpacks are MUCH more useful.

Mine holds up pretty well. I have used it a few times at Nassau and CC and later at WDW.
I also quite like it. (But then mine is a black one and I like black anyway).

I have two, after doing a b2b, which I'm afraid to use at all. One of them is a replacement for one that we used one time which started losing it's rivets. We only used it for a pool day and didn't have much stuff in it at all.

If anyone has any ideas for reinforcing those, please post. :-)

We use our backpack from 2012 all the time. Even if we reinforce the rivets, I'm not sure how much we'll actually use the totes.

I don't have one, so I'm not sure if this would work. It seems that the grommets are the problem. Could you somehow glue them in?

Have not gotten one of these new bags yet but I liked all the previous bags. I think the backpack was around the least amount of time but seems people really liked them. I still want them to bring back the beach towels with the addition of all four ship names on them.

And Sandy, thanks for this thread, great compilation!!!

We used ours as a carry on when we left the ship Saturday. It broke as we were entering our house. In it, we had a rum cake and my DD's stuffed teddy.

Hi
Just off three weeks ago my 2 nd cruise as a platinium cruisers
I was also very dissapointed in that bag / tote I love just about any bags and love the idea of getting a bag as it is very handy onboard and at castaway cay
But I also had to get a replacement at guest service as mine broke.

What I reveived also was a game in a metal box it was inside my bag / tote
The white magnetic board and pen ( earasable ) wich I found quite practical to leave my husband a message
A limited edition 15 anniversary bottle of coke
We chose the chocolates. Instead of wine ( we dont drink )
Please DCL let the quality of the gifts be back because that bag is really cheap
Some years back I received one bag ( felt like cotton ) I still have that bag
But that one the quality is really poor
