When we cruised on the Glory we struggled with that question too.
What we decided to do was to get 3 balcony cabins in a row. It was nice because we had 2 or 3 in each cabin. We had a total of 3 bathrooms. Which was a BIG PLUS.
And, we asked the steward to unlock the gate between the balconies and we just had one long balcony. It worked out great. We were able to go cabin to cabin w/out going into the hall. Loved it. Would have been even better if we had at least one connecting cabin. But maybe next time if we book earlier. Have a great cruise.
