We wanted to visit countries we had not been to before. We especially wanted to see Saint Petersburg and Stockholm. They did not disappoint and were fascinating. We had previously been on a Seabourn cruise and were told Silversea was comparable. I would give a slight edge to Silversea. The Silver Whisper is a little dated, but overall very comfortable and just the right size for us. The suite was excellent, and our butler, RJ, was very good. We were told the butler would offer to unpack our bags, but he never did. Overall, he was prompt, professional and very nice. The food was overall very good. Breakfast and lunch were excellent. Dinner was average to above average. We were very impressed with the ease and speed of the embarkation process and leaving the ship on the last day. The staff was engaging, courteous and very professional. The preferred docking locations, especially in Saint Petersburg, were a plus.
Roomy, well laid out. Nice bathroom
