Yep, Radiance Class is fantastic, especially as has been mentioned, all the glass.

This class was built as GTVs- very eco-friendly and with all that glass- purposely for Alaska and other type of scenery.

I understand it’s had a number of upgrades and re-furbs, the last one was only a couple of years ago.
