Located on Finland's southern coast, Helsinki is known for its impressive architecture, wide boulevards and beautiful harbour. It was recently named World Design Capital for 2012. Often referred to as the '"Pearl of the Baltic", this neat, clean city is a "must-see" for any serious traveller.
When our Silver Cloud and Silver Whisper met up today in Helsinki, we could not resist the opportunity to snap a few photos of the two ships docked bow to bow:
Silver Cloud Captain Cosimo Pontillo (on the right in below picture) took time to visit with Captain Cataldo Destefano aboard Silver Whisper.

Today marked Silver Cloud's last call in Helsinki before continuing on her summer route through Northern Europe. Silver Whisper will make a few more visits in the coming weeks, prior to wrapping up her Baltic season and heading to Canada and New England in time to witness the magnificent display of fall foliage.
