Default Best room situation for 6 people.

So I have a decent budget to work with, problem is I have 6 people and most rooms only hold 4 at max. I already checked family suite to hold 6, and it was way over budget. So I have these options:

1) 3 Ocean View Rooms (possibly connected)
2) 2 Side by Side ocean view rooms w/balcony
3) 1 mini suite w/balcony (2 ppl) & 1 ocean view room w/balcony (4 ppl)
4) 1 minisuite w/balcony (4 ppl) & 1 ocean view room w/balcony (2 ppl)

I am told for options 3 and 4 it is highly unlikely that I will be able to get the rooms side by side, and will most likely even be on seperate floors.
Just curious for those who have been in similar situations or if you were in a similar situation. Which option would you choose? any other option you would recommend? Thanks a whole bunch.

another option is to go with a outside balcony stateroom and an inside stateroom across the hall. This would most likely be your most inexpensive way to go. Lots of familes do this, put the kids in the inside, its just a place for them to sleep and shower, and they can hang-out with you on the balcony if they choose to do so.

NCL (and the others, I'm sure) offers substantial discounts for additional people and additional cabins.
You may have more of a budget that you think.

Also, that inside state room has less motion if any might get seasick.
