Aggravatin', ain't it, Lee??!!

These print issues usually come down to "double profiling."

Did you try printing from Mac's Preview app?
Before hitting Print, use Tools>Assign Profile to see what the Colorsync profile is.
Then select File>Print, change Preview to Print Settings; make sure Color Settings shows as Off.
Click the Print button.
If the image looks ok in Preview, and a print comes out ok, it's not the profile.
If the print is bad, it may be a printer/cartridge issue.

Costco lets you select color correction yes/no; does Adorama?
Maybe you can let Adorama correct colors, see what happens.
