Silver Whisper Dining

Dining
5.0
For breakfast, passengers can opt for light fare, set out pre-sun-up in the Observation and Panorama lounges, or an ample buffet in the Terrace Cafe. The Restaurant is also open for a more formal-style breakfast (try the house-made Mueslix or the grilled lamb chops). For lunch, the Terrace Cafe continues its buffet theme (try to get one of the outside tables) and The Restaurant has the more formal menus. The Poolside Grille is an ultra-casual option; its menu features burgers, fries, grilled chicken and salads.

Dinner is each day's culinary highlight. The Restaurant offers a six course menu, with plenty of choices, including a vegetarian entree and "CruiseLite" menu (low cholesterol, low fat and low sodium). The ship's affiliation with the prestigious Relais & Chateaux network of top-notch inns and restaurants results in an occasional guest chef stint from one of its storied hostelries; on our trip the chef from France's world-famous Bocuse offered a variety of appetizers and entrees - each one more fabulous than the next - throughout the voyage.

Another intriguing option is the Terrace Cafe's themed events. Occasionally throughout each voyage the restaurant opens for dinner (banishing any trace of its buffet operation), offering any one of 16 different six-course set menus ranging from Asian to French to Italian to all-seafood. The chef works in tandem with the sommelier to pair the food with appropriate wines. Advance reservations are required for these events, which are limited to 50 passengers, but we rarely experienced trouble booking a table.

Room service was consistently exceptional. There's a comprehensive 24-hour menu and passengers can order from The Restaurant's menu during meal times. Service is prompt and efficient; wait staff arrives with crystal, china and Frette tablecloth and performs a full, restaurant-style setup in your suite. Upon request, they will serve the meal course-by-course (at a pace you specify) or all at once. Staying in for a movie night? Order the popcorn.
