Hi All. DW and I are taking our first Princess cruise in a few weeks. We've mostly sailed HAL and we're really excited to try another line! We're sailing from San Pedro to the Mexican Riviera on the Emerald on November 5th.

I noticed our boarding docs specify a boarding time of 1 to 3 PM. HAL just states when boarding starts and when the ship sails on our previous cruises. We like to board early and have lunch in the MDR. Will we not be allowed to board earlier than the assigned time?
