Itinerary

The luxury cruise ship will sail 113 days from Los Angeles to Barcelona. Spring and summer cruises find Northern Europe and Norway’s spectacular fjords at their very best before autumn reveals Canada and New England during fall foliage season. Silver Whisper’s globetrotting schedule slows with a 17-day Amazon cruise and Caribbean sailings through year’s end.
