The sister ship of the Silver Shadow, the Silver Whisper underwent significant renovations in 2010 to give it a more contemporary look matching Silversea's most recent ship, the Silver Spirit; carpets and curtains in staterooms were replaced and sofas and chairs reupholstered in warmer color palettes. In addition to choosing from a selection of soaps, pillows, and beverages (true on all Silversea ships), passengers can now specify whether they prefer the soft or firm side of their mattresses, all of which were custom-made for the line. The ship has adopted another Silver Spirit innovation: the Grill, where diners are provided with their own heated grills to cook their meals to taste. The Silver Whisper will be spending much of 2014 in the Baltic and Caribbean.
