Silver Whisper is the second on Silveasea Cruises' two "second-ganeration" ships (her older sister is the Silver Shadow). She was built at two different shipyards, with the hull constructed at Visentini in Donada and towed to the T. Mariotti shipyard in Genoa for completion. Silver Whisper is one of the few cruise ships given a five-star ranking by Berlitz. All accommodation are suites and all have either a picture window or a private balcony.
