How it Ranks: Silver Whisper ranks #2 out of 5 Silversea Cruises Cruise Ships based on an analysis of expert and user ratings, as well as health ratings.

On this ship, guests have a difficult time deciding what's more impressive: the scenery from their well-appointed suites or the decadent meals at La Champagne, a French restaurant affiliated with Relais & Châteaux. According to recent cruisers, extravagance extends from the swanky casino to the beds draped in especially comfortable linens. While a voyage aboard the Silver Whisper will cost you a pretty penny, previous passengers assure the level of luxury that comes with staying in one of the ship's suites is well worth the high price tag. After all, when else can you customize your pillow preferences and have a minibar chock-full of your choice of items? During the day, you'll find plenty of options to keep you busy, from boutique shopping to pool-lounging to fitness training. Should you require some additional R&R, indulge in a rejuvenating massage at the Spa of Silversea. Afterward, sample delectable dishes at one the ship's four varied dining venues or mingle with fellow guests over cocktails at The Bar. Beginning in 2014, Silver Whisper will make its way from Los Angeles to New Zealand and Australia before navigating Europe, Canada, New England and the Caribbean.
