Fresh from recent refurbishments, these two yachtlike gems are all about style, understatement, and personal choice, so if you want to snuggle into a book in the well-stocked library, no one will lift an eyebrow. Although there simply isn't enough square footage on these ships for huge rooms, the public spaces are more than adequate and designed to function well. These ships served as the models for their larger sisters, Silver Shadow and Silver Whisper, which expanded on the smaller ships' concept of locating all passenger accommodations forward and public rooms aft.
The Restaurant is one of the loveliest dining rooms at sea, with a domed ceiling and musicians to provide dance music between courses. Both the Bar or Panorama Lounge are comfortable spots to socialize, dance, or enjoy cocktails before or after the evening entertainment, which might include a classical concert or smallish production show in the show room or Moonlight Movies, feature films shown outside on the pool deck.
