Silversea Silver Whisper

4.5/5 |

With all-suite rooms, a convivial cosmopolitan ambience, and special amenities usually reserved for larger ships, the Silversea Silver Whisper wraps 382 guests in the comfort of home each time it sets sail. While the Silversea Whisper is small enough to offer an intimate cruise experience, it’s large enough to provide a range of onboard activities to keep guests entertained from the start to finish of their cruise.

When compared to other luxury cruise ships of its size, the Silversea Silver Whisper provides more options for its guests: a poolside grill, a cigar bar, an Internet café, boutique shopping, a wellness spa with a beauty salon, and full-scale productions performed in a multi-tiered show lounge, among others. Whether you’re interested in escaping to the quiet of a library or immersing yourself in onboard live entertainment, the amenities onboard the Silversea Whisper can meet your needs.

Reykjavik to Manhattan

| Iceland, Greenland, Newfoundland, Quebec, Nova Scotia and Manhattan
Its a beautiful ship, as are all Silversea ships. But as noted above, this was a 16 day cruise and more dining choices and public areas would been nice. Silver Whisper is one of their smaller ships.

Fall Colors on the Whisper

| Canada and New Englanc
I really enjoyed this cruise although I was ill prepared for the unusually early cold spell. For the first several days, the temperatures were below freezing which limited the outdoor activities. The warmth was there in the ship. Great lectures (Female Astronaut Kathy Sullivan), professional crew, friendly atmosphere and plenty of opportunities to meet and greet. I give this experience a very good report because of the staff.

Great trip

Great trip

Fjord trip to Norway

| Norway
Silversea Cruises always does a top notch job. The Fjords cruise is a beautiful trip. Staff are well-trained and provide excellent service. The entertainment is what would be expected for a small ship. We were disappointed with the cuisine, which wasn't what we remembered from our last trip. The interior of our stateroom was tired with scratched woodwork and worn upholstery. The cleanliness was excellent. We took part in 3 shore excursion hikes which were incredible. The hikes were quite challenging which we appreciated. They were rated strenuous by the ship which was accurate. We also appreciated that the number of guests on the excursions was small.

Silver Whisper - September 3, 2019

| Mediterranean
The reception staff worked so hard trying to locate luggage for myself and also 4 other staterooms that were missing their luggage as well.   They contacted the agents in the ports of call and the agents were the ones to pick up my luggage and deliver both pieces to the ship.  I had an opportunity to meet with the Future Cruise Consultant and he was extremely knowledgeable regarding upcoming cruises.   Silversea cruises offered candy in your stateroom upon arrival which is something new.  They also delivered sweets to your stateroom during the cruise.
Having lost my luggage, the Whisper gave me essential sundry items I needed until my luggage was found.  5 Stars for Silversea Cruises.

2017 World Cruise

| 2017 World Cruise
This is one of the few ships offering a Full World Cruise with plenty of formal evenings,  live music, elegance and offers dancing with a dance instructor who are part of the Gentlemen and Lady host program. This feature is very appealing to solos, singles, widows and widowers.  On this ship one never feel alone even if one chooses to dine alone.  Despite the ship needing some significant refurbishment, Whisper may likely offer the best overall atmosphere for solo travelers desiring some luxury touches, at the current time. The single supplement was lower than what the competing lines were charging on the 2017 FWC.   Deck 4 Vista suites were dominated by Solo passengers.
Very easy was embarkation in San Francisco at the cruise terminal. And because of the size of the ship and the outstanding crew, rarely will you find a queue. We left port from San Francisco off to 5 days at sea before reaching Hilo, Hawaii.  Days at Sea  were a perfect opportunity to settle in, sample the various activities and shows, and well just  get to know each other. The ship visited Hilo, Maui, Honolulu then sailed 5 days at sea to reach Samoa, we crossed the international dateline and lost a day. Then on to Tonga, 2 days at sea, to Auckland, NZ. From there we sailed New Zealand then Australia from Newcastle, Sydney Melbourne, Adelaide, Fremantle, Geralton, Exmouth ( beautiful town tournament fishing but with more flies than people) The main ports thereafter were in Bali, Palawan(spectacular beaches) Manila, Taiwan,  Japan ( we crossed International Dateline again)  Shanghai, Hong Kong, Viet Nam, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, India, Doha, Dubai, Oman, Egypt, Jordan, Greece, Italy, Malta ending in Monaco.

14 days on Silver Whisper from Tokyo to Anchorage

| Japan and Alaska
I would recommend Silversea as a wonderful cruise line. My review should not be based on the fact that this was a repositioning cruise and is scheduled to go into dry dock later this year. There was a port originally on the itinerary, which would have enabled 2 days at sea, port visit and 2 more days at sea. The port is Russian so it was deleted, which made for a long 5 days at sea. Since the Whisper is small and the weather was cold, the outside facilities were not utilized (Outdoor restaurant, pool, jacuzzi, etc.). There were activities inside (lectures, trivia, bingo, etc) but it was the same everyday and it appeared that guests were getting bored. The entertainment schedule was changed a few times and the communication was not always perfect. Many guests were on waitlist for tours and never cleared, even though the tours were included. I would have loved to see more culturally immersion tours-seems to be the way travel is heading. I feel the cruise was nice but not anything special (based on tours, entertainment, crew training).

Silversea Caribbean Holiday

| New York, Bermuda, Caribbean
It's like coming home when we take a new voyage. The staff greets you by name after the first day. The restaurant menus change daily with many updated options. The ship is small, with very experienced world travelers as passengers. If you want a mega ship with rock climbing walls, etc. Silversea is not a good choice. But, if you want refined luxury with a relaxed atmosphere Silversea is the answer.

Beautiful Norway

| Norway fjords
This is a beautiful ship -- small enough to get around easily, but large enough to have options. Service was excellent and friendly. No formal nights on this itinerary.

silversea cruise Iceland to London

| Iceland to London
the Whisper is currently not up to the fine standard of Silversea. Stained carpets in hallways, table on balcony worn and scuffed, scuffed paint in various places on the ship it would have been nice to have the cruise director or similar person give live talks each day about the excursions for the next day. they are available on the TV but in person experts would be better. the cooking class of how to make casa dias was amazingly silly - everyone knows how to make these already. something challenging would have been nice. if there are formal evenings during the cruise it would be good to have been made aware in the cruise information given.

World Cruise 2020

| Caribbean South America Antarctica. Polynesia Indonesia Asia Europe
The World Cruise isnt just about the Destinations. When youre onboard, you can expect to be continuously spoiled and entertained. The world is expanded and explained by enrichment expert lecturers and time for the varied activities programs, The food is exceptional and nothing rivals the stellar personal service of the crew - from.the laundry worker to the waiters to butler to the officers.

Cruise to New Zealand and Australia

| New Zealand and Australia
Wish land excursion would have been longer. Everything seemed rushed. Said you could eat, shop, and tour different things. In reality you only had 1 hour and could only do one thing. We would get back to the boat which didnt leave for 4-6 hours. Disappointing

Silversea "Silver Whisper" Really Shines

| Panama Canal Cruise
From the moment one steps on board, the entire staff-front desk, cabin attendants, waiters, bar servers and everyone you pass in the halls are eager to please. You are always met with a friendly smile, greeting with genuine desire to help in every way. The cabins are spacious, immaculate and nicely appointed. Dining options are plentiful, from casual poolside salads to gourmet service in The Restaurant and La Terraza. LeChampagne (additional $40 per person fee), serves an outstanding 6 course feast, with wine pairings to perfectly match each course. The public areas throughout the ship offer many comfortable choices-to suit every mood and need. The bar service with all/endless included beverages is complete to please all tastes and desires. Butler service in all cabins is a great luxury and added value.

Excellent

| Athens to Venice
Service from staff and all members of the ship was exceptional. The food was great with wonderful wine selections, and prices were much less than expected.

Baltic Cruise, June-July 2015

| Stockholm, Talinn, Estonia; St. Petersburg, Helsinki, Copenhagen, one day at sea
We sailed with a group of friends, enjoyed the cruise very much and would sail with Silversea again. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. It is somewhat misleading to say that Stockholm and Copenhagen are part of the cruise. They are starting and ending points, and to see them, you have to book extra time on your own or through the ship. Wi fi service was $30 per day and spotty at that. It will supposedly be offered at no charge beginning in 2016.
