Tak....you talking two people in the shower or the berth ?
One thing to consider here is location. I'm sure, for instance that if your cruising ground is PNW US/Canada the coziness of the pullman is not going to be an issue but spend a few weeks in the Australian summer and it could be another story.
As I said before my preference is either a forward island or a foward v-berth that you can sleep in with your feet aft.
