Default Blue Balconies

Many cruise ships have blue tinted glass around the lower portion of the balcony. This is much better than a wall from the cruiser's standpoint.
Many cruisers sit or layout on their blue tinted balconies hoping to "catch some rays".

So, my question is; what effect if any does the blue tinted glass have of said rays? Does the tinting intensify the rays, or does it serve as a filter so you can stay out longer, or does it have no effect at all?

All I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by; John Masefield

I would guess it would reduce the rays. I know that's why we tint windows in AZ in our cars. I am sure the cruise lines think about their air conditioning bills as well.
