Cabin: Mid-ship Mini-Suite with Balcony

This was our 2nd time on the Joy the first time in Haven this time balcony plus. Which is bigger bathroom. Overall the ship was clean after the 3 week drydock. Due to weather and rough seas we spent most of our time inside. The activities were very limited and usually basic bean bag toss, language lessons and trivia in the atrium. Then there were the usual art, bingo, and other extra charge games. The shows were 2nd rate at there best, and some of the bar entertainers acted like they didn't want to be there? Food? Where should I start, dining room mediocre at best, Luke warm and slow service with menu repeated every other day. Lunch in Taste dining room appetizers and entree both served at same time after waiting 40 minutes. And they were cold. Buffet was not much better, old time smorgasbord would of been nice. Service in Buffet is nil. Cabin cleaned once a day around noon. Let me conclude this is our 82nd cruise and have been spoiled on other cruise lines, NCL not so much.
