Silversea’s all-suite Silver Whisper has sailed from Los Angeles on a 121-day voyage around the world encompassing Pacific islands, ancient and modern wonders of Asia and Arabia, and concluding in May in Rome.

The evening prior to departure, Silver Whisper’s guests were serenaded with live orchestral music as they enjoyed a gala bon voyage dinner at the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills. The dinner is one of several unique complimentary benefits for World Cruise guests, including seven special cultural events that await them in Tahiti, Melbourne, Hong Kong, Ho Chi Minh City, Bangkok, Mumbai and Sorrento.

Complementing the adventure is an array of interior design upgrades and technical enhancements that were completed aboard Silver Whisper in December as part of the company’s fleetwide renovation programme launched at the end of 2016. Among the highlights are public spaces redesigned to echo the decor of Silversea’s new flagship, Silver Muse. These refreshed venues include the Observation Lounge, Panorama Lounge and La Terrazza.
