Head To Head In Helsinki: Silver Whisper & Silver Cloud, Old Friends, Family Meet

Head To Head In Helsinki: Silver Whisper & Silver Cloud

This morning, Silver Whisper docked in a friendly place: right next door to its little sister, Silver Cloud.

Captain Cataldo Stefano of Silver Whisper and Captain Mino Pontillo of Silver Cloud, taking a moment to visit while their ships were docked in Helsinki, Finland.

One of the more enjoyable aspects for me was watching crew visit from one ship to the other. After watching hugs and farewells, I asked one crew member on the way back from Cloud to Whisper, “Wife, friend, family?” “She’s my best friend,” he replied.

Even the captains took time to visit one another. I was lucky enough to share an espresso on the bridge with them and snap a photo.

The long and short of it: (foreground) Silver Whisper, guest capacity 382; crew capacity, 295, one shy of Silver Cloud's guest capacity, 296.
Silver Cloud sets sail for Visby, Sweden; Whisper departs later for St. Petersburg.
Two years ago, Cloud turned its back on a less friendly neighbor in the very same spot.
