We are sailing in a couple of days out of Southampton and I'm rather bothered by the staggered boarding system. We will be flying all night then have the long bus ride from London to the ship only to be told to have a seat and wait out appointed boarding time. We will get a light breakfast on the plane and then nothing until we get to the ship. Our boarding time is 3pm!!! We finally made it to platinum status and this is how we're treated. In the past I've only had good things to say about Princess but I will have to tell them what I think about this new idea.
