Silver Whisper is a cruise ship that entered service in 2000, and is operated by Silversea Cruises.[1] The passenger capacity is 382 passengers, and there are 295 crew members. Her sister ship is the Silver Shadow; both ships were built by the Mariotti Shipyard in Genoa, Italy. They both have a high space-to-passenger ratio—the ship's gross tonnage divided by the passenger capacity—at 74, providing more space per passenger than any other cruise ship. The passenger-to-crew ratio is also high, at 1.31 to 1.


There are 194 outside suites, ranging in size from 287 square feet (26.7 m2) to 1,435 square feet (133.3 m2); 80% of which feature teak balconies.


Silver Whisper is scheduled to take a 140-day world cruise in 2020. The ship will visit 62 ports in 32 countries and will become the first ship to visit seven continents on a world cruise.[2]
