All cabins on Silversea Whisper are called "suites" but some are, well, sweeter than others. 80 percent have verandahs. Even basic "vista" (no balcony) suites are roomy and comfortably elegant, with dark woods and color schemes in harvest red, old gold and moss green. Standard suites (vista and verandah) come with sitting areas, a table large enough for in-cabin dining,
writing desks, videocassette players and walk-in closets. Gorgeous marble bathrooms have a separate tub and shower. Beyond standard cabins are a variety of larger suites, from "medallion" to "silver" to "royal" to "grand" - many of these have whirlpool baths and completely separate living and sleeping areas - but the ooh la la ultimate-of-ultimates is the "owners'
cabin." There are two; so spacious, they feature a living room with bar and big, plasma-screen television, a dining room, powder room and the choice of one or two bedrooms (with Jacuzzi bathrooms). The ship also has two extra-large cabins for physically and/or visually challenged passengers.
Cabin 606 - Good size, we liked being near the front (I don't think midship is a huge advantage, other than a slightly shorter walk) and near the Observation deck, where we got coffee in the early mornings, and the fitness center.
