    Is the gift still a beach bag for western Caribbean or has it switched to the sling back pack?

    Thank you! I was wondering if I needed to pack a beach bag.

    Sling bags as of yesterday. I cannot believe I am saying this, but I sort of miss the big beach bag. :)

    I don't. I wish we had a cruise planned, I want to get the sling bag. I have something like 6 beach bags. I don't use beach bags.

    Since the changeover we have 3 sling bags (added to our collection of beach bags) and though I love the quality, I just can't fit as much stuff in them when we have last minute items on debarkation morning.

    That’s what I keep hearing. They are much smaller than a regular backpack. I’ll be packing the old beach bag for sure!

    I am not a fan of the sling bag, we have four. Too bad PrincessShmoo and I do not live close to one another. We could trade. :goodvibes I wish they would bring back beach towels. That is something I would use and use often.

    Sounds like someone needs to set up a CC gift swap! Everyone can list what they have multiples of and want to swap. I wish I’ve been enough that I have multiples!

    I had heard the gifts now vary by ship and castaway level, is this true? So if the gift on the Magic is the sling bag, will all castaways get the same gift? TIA

    Time was the itinerary determined the gift. Well, the Silver level gift.

    The Silver level gift (basic gift) is a bag. In the past it's been a beach bag for the Caribbean itineraries, a sling bag for Alaska, a back pack for Europe. Recently it appears that all ships are giving the sling bag for the basic gift.

    The gift for Gold is the Silver gift (bag) plus (currently) luggage tags. The gift for Platinum is the Silver gift (bag), Gold gift (luggage tags), and a choice of various in room gifts.
