Years ago, I spent a lot of time to understand the various interpretations of quantum mechanics, before I came up with my own thermal interpretation. The reason was that I was thoroughly puzzled about the meaning of the formalism.

Quantum mechanics is special among all physical theories in that the meaning is so far removed from the formalism that even after almost a century since the Schroedinger equation appeared, there is no consensus among physicists what it means - the only consensus (to current experimental accuracy) is how to use it to get verifiable answers, i.e., the positivistic aspect of the problem. For me it is very important that a theory is understandable, not only applicable. Of course, in order to qualify as a valid interpretation, the interpretation must be compatible with the positivistic stance (''shut up and calculate"), in this sense, the answer to your question is yes, by definition of an interpretation.

But an interpretation must satisfy beyond that certain non-mathematical criteria - simplicity, naturalness, closeness of the interpretation to the formalism, etc., and here the different interpretations differ widely and give possible approaches to the ''true'' meaning.

The value of a good interpretation is that it makes teaching the subject far easier. Lack of interpretation is impossible as one must somehow relate the formalism to reality. That's why interpretations are necessary. In my opinion, a satisfying interpretation must be such that it can be essentially reconstructed inside the formalism, in the same way as the foundations of mathematics (by ZFC, say) can be reconstructed internally inside mathematics (except that, due to Goedel's theorems, one can prove inside a tiny little less only).

I believe that the dynamics of the universe (the only experimentally accessible one) is ultimately realistic and deterministic, though we currently do not yet understand how. I don't find Bohmian mechanics a satisfying answer (see, e.g., here) - it is counterintuitive in many respects (though it doesn't contradict the experiments related to bell's inequalities). I find the many worlds interpretation even less satisfying, as it postulates the existence of all possible worlds, and thus explains nothing. But without thinking through the most relevant alternatives available it is unlikely that one can find something better.
