Cruise Saudi has welcomed another Silversea cruise ship to the kingdom’s waters.

Silver Whisper is the second ship operated by the luxury cruise line in Saudi Arabia after

Silver Spirit took part in a trial summer season in 2020, making it one of just a few ships to sail during the pandemic.

An ultra-luxury cruise ship, Silver Whisper will be the fourth ship to sail the Saudi waters around the Red Sea as part of its World Cruise 2022, Tale of Tales. Over 138-days, the ship will visit 69 destinations in 32 countries, including Jeddah and Yanbu.

The cruise ship has been designed for luxury-seekers and offers spacious, ocean-view suites that include butler services, and most with private verandas. Silver Whisper also includes a shipboard boutique with collections from top designers, world-class cuisine served in four restaurants, a multi-tiered show lounge, swimming pool and pool deck, beauty salon, wellness spa, fitness centre, library and other venues.

Cruise Saudi was launched with a clear goal of establishing cruising as a new economic pillar, adding a new experiential dimension to the country’s fast-growing tourism industry in line with the goals of Vision 2030, the Saudi leadership’s transformation blueprint.

The entity has partnerships with several major international cruise lines including MSC Cruises, Scenic Group, Viking and Silversea, which collectively have completed more than 70 sailings during the summer and winter seasons in 2021 and 2022.
