Default Open Decks or Private Verandahs?

One thing for sure, at the published prices, I won't be cruising on the new "Pearl Mist". But, looking at the deck plans, I see that every room has a private verandah; there are no walk around decks. One of the charms about the DQ and the AQ are their walk around decks and being able to say hello to fellow passengers. Having taken several ocean cruises in rooms with private verandahs, I found that the verandahs compartmentalized people. It was hard to meet, much less carry on a conversation, with fellow passengers.
I'm sure cruise lines think that private verandahs are revenue enhancers, but are they really?
