Accomodating 5 people onrowupdating
I really hope the world of the 9-5 job catches up and continues to learn how to embrace and accommodate those who have struggled rather than expecting neurotypical traits to be a given in their employees.
At the time being, here are my thoughts on two very good alternative career paths for introverts, including any of us on the Spectrum, those of us with mental illness, those of us with anxiety, or any of us who struggle with interpersonal interaction in general: Ultimately, the most important thing is for families to not give up on their loved ones on the spectrum or those who are suffering from depression or any mental illness.
If you're traveling with kids maybe that could be shared.
The NCL star (round trip Seattle) does have balcony cabins that accomodate 5 with the rollaway bed (category BB) I actually priced out the May 15th date for you and the 3/4/5th passenger rates are plus port and taxes so for your family of 5 you are looking at around 70 total price (cruise port and taxes).
(Our window looked right out on the small front deck.)We had two beds together that would be L shaped if separate, a double bed size pull out sofa and a pull down bunk.
If you put our beds into the L shape you could get a crib or roll-a-way bed in the room also.
If you use a good travel agent, he or she can ensure that you get the accommodations you are looking for. We had one once and the matress was thin so our steward took the mattress from the pull down and put it on it.
