Silver Whisper, like its sister ship Silver Shadow, holds slightly more passengers than earlier
ships Silver Cloud and Silver Wind. As a result, there are a few more options (such as a poolside grill, a cigar bar and a dedicated Internet center), but the experience remains relaxing, genuinely pampering, elegantly casual and yet - sophisticated.
The Silversea hallmark is its veritable all-inclusiveness along with the kind of superb hospitality that comes with superior service. The onboard experience includes drinks (wine, cocktails,
juices, sodas) and gratuities. Not to mention the wonderful little extras, like complimentary shuttles in port, and free laundry facilities (among just
a few examples), that make this an effortless vacation.
Silver Whisper Fellow Passengers
An interesting mix, from mid-30s on up and geographically diverse, with passengers hailing from the Far East, South America, and Europe - though most were American. One note: the line's more aggressive
promotional efforts - via Simplicity Pricing and a presence on the Internet auction site Luxury Link (non-balconied cabins only) has resulted in more 30-
and 40-something passengers. Regardless, everyone is relatively well-to-do.
Silver Whisper Dress Code
Always elegant, whether casual (chic resort wear) or formal (subtle finery; not a beaded gown in sight). Many men wore tuxedos on formal nights.
Silver Whisper Gratuity
All gratuities are included in the cruise fare and "extra" tips are not encouraged.
