At a Glance: A Travel + Leisure World’s Best 2016 winner, placing seventh in the Mid-Size Ocean Ship category. Last refurbished in 2016, the hyper-luxe 382-passenger Silver Whisper is sister vessel to the Silver Shadow. 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 for Silversea’s 118+-day world cruise.
