London - Embark Silver Whisper
You’ll embark Silver Whisper in London for your luxury transatlantic voyage. Opulent yet intimate, Silver Whisper has all the amenities of a grand resort but with the charm of a boutique hotel. From the sanctuary of your suite, to the extensive dining opportunities and indulgent spa – you can’t help but fall in love with the Silversea style of cruising.
Days at sea are the perfect opportunity to relax and unwind before the busy days spent exploring shore side. Enjoy complimentary cocktails, live music and engaging conversation with new friends at the Dolce Vita, or gaze out at the vista from the Panorama Lounge - the perfect place to take afternoon tea listen to the pianist and watch the sun set.
Home to quintessentially Cornish treasures, like the pasty, surfing shacks, colourful fishing boats bobbing with the tide and a handful of immaculate beaches, the port of Falmouth splays out across a rocky spur in the far south-west of Cornwall. Still bustling with commerce even today, the town has a long and tumultuous maritime history that has contributed to its attractive slate-covered houses and grand waterfront homes.
Pronounced ‘cove’, tiny Cobh sits resplendent at the gateway to County Cork, its yawning mouth one of the world’s largest natural harbours with an imposing neo-Gothic cathedral looming overhead. Characterised by its steep, labyrinthine streets lined with a paint box of colourful houses and its many commemorative monuments, the town offers a slice of Irish charm and plenty of history.
On board this luxury cruise ship you’ll find a divine selection of Italy’s best cuisine using authentic recipes and the freshest ingredients in La Terrazza. You could also choose to dine at The Restaurant that serves contemporary, international cuisine including regional specialities specific to your cruise. The open-seating dining means there are no assigned times so you are free to dine whenever and with whoever you like.
St John’s may be Newfoundland’s provincial capital, but its population teeters at around 200,000. Development has been slow here, much like the pace of life: clapboard houses in primary colours line charming terraced streets, its mix of English and Irish influences seen throughout its Victorian architecture. Get to know St John’s prosperous music and arts scene, sustainable food buzz and rugged, windswept coastline battered by stormy sea breezes.
Tiny St Pierre is almost 3,000 miles from the French mainland, but here the Norman, Basque and Breton descendants speak a language closer to that of European France than of Canada. The island is the smallest of the French Overseas Collective, where you’ll find many relics of its French past, a beautiful Old Town worth seeing on a walking tour and an archipelago pocked with coves and cliffs that’s best seen by Zodiac from the water.
The closest settlement in Nova Scotia resembling a major town as we know it, Sydney is the island’s sole city and was once home to the epicentre of Canada’s booming steel industry. Today the attractive waterfront town draws visitors to Cape Breton to explore its Celtic music scene, famous Bras d’Or lakes and Loyalist architecture. While here, don’t miss the chance to try lobster and halibut: a local delicacy.
A marked departure from the charming port towns of Nova Scotia, Halifax is a vibrant, modern hub with excellent nightlife and a number of great restaurants. As striking from the water as it is from its quaintly traditional old town, the city bustles thanks to its five universities, shopping opportunities and festivals. Haligonians – the city’s local population – are famously proud of their quality of life and are very welcoming to visitors.
One of the USA’s most culturally rich and diverse cities, Boston offers a wonderfully charming clash of old and new: here you can shop in traditional markets on cobbled streets and take tea in historic hotels, or head up to the top of a glittering skyscraper for jaw-dropping views across its seascape.
Boston, Massachusetts was founded in 1630 and is one of the USA’s oldest cities; discover its diverse routes and its participation in the American Revolution by following the 2.5-mile Freedom Trail, a walking route that winds through historic sights such as Faneuil Hall, a famous marketplace.
Cape Cod Canal
Cape Cod Transit Canal is a sight that’s denied to many cruise passengers though possible to Silversea guests due to the intimate size of its ships. Glide under the two fixed bridges and enjoy the tranquillity of the canal before you disembark and transfer to New York for your hotel stay.
