Guess that heavily depends on what you are running inside your VMs.
If the services inside don't need each other or anything provided by
the other cluster-resources (or other way round) or everything is
synchronizing independently from the cluster ...
What you could still do is make the timeout more generous and combine
it with checking for a certain boot-state - so that it either proceeds
after the generous timeout (when something is broken inside the VM)
or if a certain state is reached.
