At a Glance: A Travel + Leisure World’s Best 2016 winner, placing tenth in the Mid-size Ocean Ship category. The hyper-luxe 382-passenger Silver Shadow is almost identical to its sister vessel, Silver Whisper. It manages to hit the sweet spot between the intimacy of a smaller ship and the amenities of a larger one, making it an ideal home away from home during days at sea.
