Silver Suite on Whisper

Recommended Posts

We booked our first Silversea for August. Clueless on many topics but curious what regulars think of cabin choices. We opted for Silver Suite for the size. Anybody know details on cabins and ship in general? Do we have to book dinners in advance for the French and Italian restaurants? Thanks all!

Nice!  Should be a great suite.

 

Lots of helpful folks here.  What kind of details are you looking for re: the suites and ship?  You can download the deck plan of the entire ship at Silversea’s website.  Beyond that, ask away.

 

In regards to dinners, you do not “have" to book dinners in advance at La Dame and La Terrazza.  But, it is recommended to do so before embarkation if there is a specific night you want to dine in either venue.  Otherwise, you can visit with the Maître D' once on board, or ask your butler to take care of it for you.

Stumblefoot thank you! We're excited to try this line. 20 plus years on Windstar...Sea Dream and Ponant so eager to experience Silversea..The Silver Suite was pricey but Deck 7 looks good. We're doing August Barcelona to Monte Carlo..most ports we know. Wish it were tomorrow. Cheers!

We loved our Silver Suite on Whisper when we cruised from Barbados to Manaus and back to Barbados in November of 2018. My brother was also onboard in a Veranda Suite, and neither of the men wanted to dress up, so the Silver Suite allowed the 3 of us to eat dinner in our suite with the excellent food from The Restaurant being served to us for dinner by our butler.

La Dame definitely does require an advance reservation, and it also costs 60 dollars per person. We booked one reservation in advance of the cruise for the 3 of us. My brother thought he would not like it, but at the end of our first dinner at La Dame, he wanted more, and we booked a second dinner for the 3 of us, again at 60 dollars each. I don't think the Italian restaurant required reservations before boarding, and there was no additional cost, but we preferred The Restaurant. The hot rocks grill didn't appeal to us at all. We had made a second reservation before we ate there the first time, and we cancelled it the day after we ate there. Cooking our own food at the table, with the resulting smoke and heat wasn't for us.

We're booked for Fort Lauderdale to Auckland in January 2021. My brother isn't joining us for this cruise, we're in a Veranda Suite since it's enough room for the 2 of us. We have the clothes to dress for dinner in The Restaurant, so we'll be eating there most of the time. We'll be paying for a reservation at La Dame since we love French cuisine, and hoping we can get an additional reservation. While we're not in a Silver Suite, we're on back-to-back cruises, and should be able to get a reservation on each leg.

We did a Sea Dream cruise to the Caribbean, and enjoyed it. It's much more of a small boat experience than Silver Whisper. We've done 3 Paul Gauguin cruises (now owned by Ponant), and it's closer to the size of Silver Whisper, but it's still much more casual, with suites being modest in size. 

We found the service to be exceptional on Silver Whisper, as we found it on Sea Dream and Paul Gauguin. We also cruise on Regent, and while still enjoyable, is definitely a bigger boat experience. We would never consider a ship with more than 1000 passengers.
