Silver Whisper is one of the ship that comes to Helsinki a lot. Interestingly, these ships tend to fall into two very different categories: large mass-market ships like AIDAsol, Celebrity Constellation and Norwegian Sun in one end of the spectrum, and exclusive luxury ships like Le Boréal, Seabourn Sojourn and Silver Whisper in the other. I find it quite fascinating that such diverse ships seem to follow so similar itineraries.

Anyway. The photographs here show the Silver Whisper at the Kustaanmiekka strait after departing Helsinki South Harbour on the afternoon of 29 May 2012. As usual, photographed from Kustaanmiekka. Click on the images to see them in larger size.

Not photographed from "The Hill" near the western shore of Suomenlinna but from the bottom of it, giving ever-so-slightly different point of views from the earlier Kristina Katarina entry from the same session.
All kinds of foreground crap here.
And a rowan in bloom. And way markers. And a small lighthouse-thing.
Past the rowan and onwards to... someplace. Probably either St. Petersburg or Stockholm.
