The Progressive checkin is a suggestion by Princess. It is not mandatory. They are trying to reduce the lines by getting more people to arrive later.

Like so many things with Princess, it merely is a suggestion. Funny thing was when we boarded the Ruby in Seattle last August. There were only 53 elite aboard and an equal number of platinum. Well over 2000 were first time cruisers on Princess and they believed the progressive checkin. For a long time after being the first to board it appeared the ship was not sold out. We later not only learned it was sold out but that there were over 200 rugrats aboard! I almost felt like I was on a carnival ship. I learned to be more careful when booking but we had our DGD along and she had to get back to start school.
