We wanted to try a newer ship like Enchanted Princess, off peak season to avoid problems at the airports.
We uploaded the medallion app on my cell phone and filled out all the information as required with some getting used to initially. We bought the Princess' transfer to Southampton terminal from London Heathrow. There were personals to take our luggage but we had to wait for about an hour with large group of passengers in order to get on the pick up bus.
The hour long ride was relatively smooth. The check in was fairly quick since we were assigned the green lane by filling out all the required information on our Medallion app beforehand. The lady let us embark after checking our antigen test paper. The whole process took about ten minutes.
Our cabin was on the Marina deck toward the back. It was quite convenient for us to go to the world market buffet restaurant one deck up or go to do our laundries at the laundromat about ten cabins down. The cabin still looked relatively new as the ship was only about one year old. Our only complaint, there was only one chair in the room for two people which did not make much sense. The stewardess brought us another chair after our complaint.
