Review In Brief


The Silver Whisper Veranda Suite is the most popular suite for Silversea guests. There's lots of room, the décor is smart and uncluttered with a classic Silversea feel, and the private teak veranda is the perfect place to watch the world drift by.

Silver Whisper Veranda Suite Review


The Silver Whisper is a luxury, small cruise ship in the Silversea ocean fleet. The guest rooms all look fresh after the 2016 makeover. Our Silver Whisper Veranda Suite review details every aspect of this delightful haven at sea.

Silver Whisper Review

Photo tour of refitted Silver Whisper

The Silver Whisper Veranda Suite is the room-type that most guests choose. There are four Veranda Suite categories (1 to 4). Each is identical in size and layout, but Veranda 3 and 4 categories offer preferred mid-ship or high-deck locations.

Position and layout

There are 143 Veranda Suites on the Silver Whisper making them the most common room category. They span decks 5 to 9, but deck 6 has more suites than any other (with 52 Veranda Suites in total).

Each Silver Whisper Veranda Suite offers 28 sq. m. (285 sq. ft.) of internal space, plus a 6 sq. m. (60 sq. ft.) private teak veranda. These are some of the largest standard rooms at sea and almost double the size of some others in the luxury cruise market. As you’ll see from this review, they really impress.

A wide entry hall runs down one side of the suite, from which you access the spacious marble bathroom and walk-in closet. The living space is dived into two distinct sections – with a bedroom and a sitting/dining area. Floor-to-ceiling glass doors lead on to the impressive teak veranda.

Your private teak veranda

Arguably the best part of the Silver Whisper Veranda Suite is the teak veranda itself. This is a private haven, a retreat where you can to feel the gentle sea breeze as you relax in your own reclining deck chair.

As we’ve noted, at 6 sq. m. (60 sq. ft.) the veranda is large. During our review we loved the teak veranda. It is deep and there was plenty of space for two people to move around.

The only minor downside was the mismatched outdoor furniture. The small, white-legged table seemed like it didn’t quite belong with the dark coloured recliners.

Tasteful Silversea living space

The living space in the Silver Whisper Veranda Suite is great. During our review we found it to be bright and airy and the décor reflects Silversea’s Italian heritage.

The space is like a junior suite in a hotel, with separate sleeping and sitting areas. You can choose either a queen or twin bed configuration. Either way the bedding is framed by a leather bed head and bedside tables on each side. The bed is super comfortable and features a premium mattresses, choice of pillows and Silversea’s signature Pratesi® sheets to ensure a restful sleep. At the foot of the bed is a vanity mirror and makeup table.

The sitting area features a comfortable 2-seater sofa, coffee table and chairs. The coffee table converts to a small dining table allowing you to enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner in your suite. A mirrored wall behind the sofa adds to the sense of light and space. On the opposite side of the sitting area is a writing desk, storage shelves, complimentary mini-bar and entertainment unit.

The entertainment unit is something of a disappointment. A small flat screen TV sits in an oversized nook that once must have contained an old-style television. Underneath is a DVD player with protruding connecting cables. It looks cluttered, but that said, this is only a minor point and it may not concern everyone.

Attractive artwork hangs on the walls in the Veranda Suite and a fresh orchid brings a touch of sophistication to this really lovely space.

In the hall there are thoughtfully placed coat hooks and a dressing mirror for checking yourself before leaving the suite.

Everybody loves a great bathroom and the Silver Whisper Veranda Suite certainly delivers. We were very impressed on our review voyage.. The opulent marble bathroom boasts a full size tub, separate walk-in shower with glass door and a double-vanity with large mirror.

There is plenty of storage space either side of the mirror and underneath the vanities. Silversea guests can choose either hypoallergenic, Ferragamo or Bvlgari bathroom products. And you are free to switch products mid-voyage. Plush bathrobes, slippers and Silversea flip-flops are also provided.
