The second in the Millennium Class, the Silver Whisper is the sister to the Shadow.
Silversea built this vessel to handle up to 382 passengers, all receiving the cruise line’s familiar, luxurious amenities as they traverse the globe. Since the ship launched in 2000, passengers have described it as having a “cosmopolitan” character, from the rooms to the quality cuisine to the entertainment on board. Currently, the Silver Whisper travels to the Caribbean, Europe, Canada, and Asia, and makes several transoceanic and world cruises throughout Asia, Africa, and the South Pacific.
Silversea outfit the Silver Whisper with nine types of rooms, varying between the smaller Vista Suites (287 square feet) to the Owner’s Suites (1,264 square feet for two bedrooms and a common space). Size determines whether or not the room comes with a large window or balcony, and if there’s a whirlpool or a full-size bathtub and rainforest shower.
Beyond these differences, the baseline experience exudes comfort and luxuriousness. Butlers are at your service, while included binoculars only help to enhance the room. Going to sleep and waking up are more than enjoyable with a range of European bath amenities, fine linens, down duvets, a choice of pillows, and the news on hand. As well, Wi-Fi, for a fee, helps you keep in touch during those longer voyages.
Elegance extends to the dining choices on board, exemplified by The Restaurant. Fine cuisine meets an ambient atmosphere, with quality linens and crystal at each table.
Specialty restaurants are another adventurous diversion. Get delicious Italian cuisine, even if you’re not traveling through Europe, at La Terrazza, or if the wine comes first, Le Champagne – the only Relais & Chateaux restaurant at sea – pairs them with various regional meals.
It’s not all formal, however. Grab a light or grilled meal with a cocktail at the Pool Bar and Grill, before finding a spot to lounge in the sun outdoors.
In the evening, the Silver Whisper has just the solution for winding down. Various lounges, like Bar and the Connoisseur’s Corner, present an array of fine drinks, all with beautiful views and atmospheres for socializing.
The Silver Whisper reflects the quintessential cruise experience – taken up a notch, of course – with an outdoor pool, a world-class spa, and an up-to-date fitness facility.
While the pool is heated to match the local temperatures, teak chaise lounges make the perfect spot for sunbathing. Or if you’re looking to relax in other ways, treatments at the Spa at Silversea focus on mind and body rejuvenation.
If it’s a thrill you’re seeking, get the adrenaline pumping in the Fitness Centre – outfitted with the latest equipment and open for various classes. Others prefer the casino’s table games, or tracking down the best deal in the duty-free boutique. Afterwards, don’t forget to freshen up in the beauty salon.
Once evening rolls around, settle down for a world-class performance in the Show Lounge. Silversea ensures all seats provide a great view to the entertainment on stage: musical productions, classical recitals, cultural entertainment, or films.
