Hi, Hucc ...
We have been in "connecting" cabins before and didn't notice any difference except for the door. There are doors on both sides, so far as I know. We have met people on "the other side" a couple of times. Identical cabins, just reversed.
We've never used both sides.
Usually the hanging lockers (closets) are part of the "foyer" for the cabin and the door is just after that as you walk into the cabin.
Sorry, no pictures.
