Knock on wood big time here BUT I have never had to wait for a room or for my luggage to be brought to the room in my past 7 cruises.  I used to hand carry a lot of stuff ""just in case", but the room is always ready and 6 out of 7 times, the luggage was already outside the door. The 7th time, it arrived about 10 minutes after I got to the room.  This has been with Princess and not as a preferred status or whatever that's called status.  Is this the norm?
