The Silver Whisper of Silversea Cruises is a small luxury ship designed to pamper its guests and make their cruise vacation a memorable one.
Although the Silver Whisper was launched in 2001, the ship underwent a major refurbishment in 2010
and looked almost new when I sailed from Buenos Aires to Valparaiso in South America
on her in December 2011. The ship's classical, elegant furnishings are timeless, and guest favorites like iPod docking stations and shipwide WiFi make it seem as modern as its youngest sister ship the Silver Spirit.
Another addition to the ship I really enjoyed was the outdoor Grill Dinner. Guests cook their own prime meats using a very hot lava stone. Cooking one bite at a time ensures the meat is hot. The ship uses hot plates for hot food and cold plates for cold food in the other dining venues, but it's difficult to keep a large steak hot for long periods (especially outdoors). The "hot rock" solves this issue. Plus, you can't complain if the meat is not cooked the way you like it!
These articles and photo galleries provide a comprehensive tour of this marvelous small ship.
