Hi jamey, And welcome to Cruise-Chat!
Sorry to read that you can't recommend Carnival based on these trivial problems.
I am sure problems arise, as I have had a few trivial ones as well. As most do with any service oriented industry.
A salad bar running out of lettuce, and slow room service during peak breakfast times would not rank up high enough for me to not recommend them.
We always give our coffee and breakfast requests to our steward the night before. Or leave the card for them. They are usually on time or early. We always go to lunch when they first put out that wonderful spread.
Seems like an unfortunate set of circumstances.
