Step Into the Grandest of Suites

Last week world traveller Ralph Grizzle, publisher of Avid Cruiser, sailed with his daughter aboard Silver Whisper in the two-bedroom Grand Suite 601. The largest suite on the ship, it offers 1,435 square feet (133 square metres) of understated elegance. This spacious, light-filled suite opens out towards the sea with a private teak veranda spanning 176 square feet (17 square metres) and an additional large picture window. Up to six guests are comfortably accommodated in an atmosphere of warm earthy tones and stylish furnishings. There's a living room (with full-size sofa, chaise longue, club chairs and coffee table), separate dining area, flat-screen television, Bang & Olufsen audio system, writing desk, private bar (stocked with complimentary beverages, wines and spirits), espresso maker, two bedrooms (each with TV), two walk-in closets, two marble baths with separate showers, a powder room, and a full-size whirlpool bath.

And there are so many more amenities to mention, we'll leave it to Mr Grizzle to fill you in with all the details and photos. Click here to read his story.
