Review summary

The fragmented remains of what made carnival great. Was forced to wait outside for over an hour in cold waiting to board ship along with an estimated 150 guests many old. this included guests with priority boarding.  Center section of ship cold upon entering. Outside cabins cold . No heat provided, only air conditioning. Ship warms up after main engines started and have set sail for several hours. Passengers complaining of lack of heat Ship becomes comfortable upon entering tropical waters. Many problems with elevators not working. Port of Charleston being prevented from building modern terminal due local protest now in courts. Passengers court in middle.
