Passenger/cargo vessels to SouthAfrica

Forgive the ignorance of a land based engineer (except for RNLI service). The vessel in question is the Union Castle's 'Kildonan Castle' and the year is 1930 but the questions may be generic.

When loading cargo/passengers I presume that the cargo loading would be completed before any passengers were embarked and that passengers would be taken on board just before sailing to save feeding them any longer than necessary. Is this correct?

Passenger names were entered on the passenger list in the order that they arrived for embarkation, because they are not alphabetical, with the first class passengers on a seperate list. Presumably seperate lists for 2nd and 3rd class. Is this correct?

If passengers names were consecutive on the list would this mean that they were allocated adjacent cabins?

Would 1st. class passengers have used a different gangway/entry port to the other passengers? Thanks.

One of the best ever books! I read when I was a youngster. It was a 'reference' book at the Library and the Librarian allowed me to take it home... for two weeks at a time. About 35 years ago I saw them for sale in a small book shop off St Martin's Lane. The price was 110. I asked if was it was per book for the set... the set was 110. I had it my hands for less than a minute! About 20 years ago I saw another and was very cheap so I bought it, a bit 'tired' so I passed it on to a friend. It is an excellent reference piece.
