Earlier this year, Disney Cruise Line refreshed their Castaway Club stateroom gifts, which are typically awaiting in the staterooms of all returning cruisers on embarkation day. The backpacks with a myriad of snacks has been replaced with one of three different color tote bags depending on your Castaway Club status. Regardless if you are a Silver, Gold, or Platinum cruiser, you will receive a tote bag with the same color as your lanyard, a matching magnetic dry erase board and magnet, and an Navilighter for highlighting your Personal Navigators.
Gold and Platinum members receive an added surprise; a game time with a deck of cards and a Cruise-o-grams, a nautical take on the popular Bananagrams. We have heard from others that the tote bags do not hold up very well and saw a few onboard with ripped out grommets. However, this was not the case for our bag, but we did not use it on the cruise.
Silver Castaway Club Gifts
- Silver tote bag
- Silver magnetic dry erase board & marker
Gold Castaway Club Gifts
- Gold tote bag
- Gold magnetic dry erase board & marker
- Game tin (not pictured – see below)
Platinum Castaway Club Gift
- Platinum (black) tote bag
- Platinum magnetic dry erase board & marker
- Game tin
- Bottle of Prosecco, Box of Truffle, or fruit plate
Platinum Castaway Club members are also offered a choice of truffles, a bottle of Prosecco, or a fruit plate. We opted for the Prosecco, because when Disney Cruise Line offers a free drink, you take it.
In March on the Fantasy, we also received a commemorative bottle of Coke celebrating the 15th Anniversary of Disney Cruise Line. I do not know if these bottles are still being passed out to passengers.
Keep in mind that these are stateroom gifts, so it is one per room, not per person. The level of Castaway Club gift will depend on the guest with the highest status in the stateroom. I’ve also heard that the game tin has not always been included with the Gold bag. Additionally, Gold & Platinum members receive a 10% off discount in the onboard gift shops (note: no discount in the shops on Castaway Cay) with some exclusions.
