Taking Silversea’s award-winning concept of all-suite luxury to the next level, these two sister ships – Silver Shadow and Silver Whisper – are slightly larger, yet retain the familiarity and intimacy of Silversea’s two earlier ships. Aboard the Silver Whisper cruise ship, savour a convivial cosmopolitan ambience and many special amenities usually found only on larger ships, including boutique shopping; a wellness spa with beauty salon, fitness centre and sauna; full-scale productions in a multi-tiered show lounge; an Internet Café and WiFi service from stem to stern.
Aboard the Silver Whisper cruise ship, 2013 begins with a 115-day World Cruise with segment points in Papeete, Sydney, Hong Kong, Singapore, Mauritius and Cape Town. Next up: Northern Europe voyages that include three nights in St Petersburg, Norwegian fjord cruising, and new in-depth Baltic experiences. September offers a popular 16-day Atlantic crossing from Southampton to Montreal with calls in Ireland, Scotland, Iceland, Greenland and Newfoundland. Lingering in Canada and New England for fall foliage season, Silver Whisper eventually seeks out some Caribbean warmth, retreats for a quick 14-day dry-dock, and returns refreshed just in time for the holidays and a 16-day Panama Canal cruise.
In 2014 Silver Whisper again hosts Silversea's annual World Cruise, sailing 113 days from Los Angeles to Barcelona. Spring and summer cruises find Northern Europe and Norway's spectacular fjords at their very best before autumn reveals Canada and New England during fall foliage season. Silver Whisper's globetrotting schedule slows to a relaxed pace with a leisurely 17-day Amazon cruise (V4432) and Caribbean sailings through year's end.

On board this luxury cruise ship, a divine selection of Italy’s best cuisine is served à la carte in La Terrazza. Authentic recipes and the freshest ingredients come together with flair and passion — a flavourful expression of Silversea’s distinctive Italian heritage that embraces the principals of Slow Food — fresh, sustainable and locally grown.
Slow Food is an eco-gastronomic concept that began at a grass roots level in reaction to “Fast Food” and is dedicated to proper land stewardship while preserving cultural food traditions. For example, La Terrazza uses buffalo mozzarella from Naples, organic balsamic vinegar and olive oil from Umbria, and air-dried ham out of Parma. The Emilia-Romagna region also produces Silversea's 24-month aged Parmigiano Reggiano, while the pasta is made daily right on board.
La Terrazza is open for casual, buffet-style breakfast and lunch with indoor or al fresco dining on the outdoor terrace. During the evening, La Terrazza transforms into an à la carte traditional Italian restaurant. Seating is limited for dinner and reservations are recommended.
