The call on Friday was commemorated with official plaque exchange between maritime marketing manager for the port, Mike Nerney; Silversea's managing director for Americas, Mark Conroy; and Zbigniew Jaszewski, Silver Whisper's staff captain.
The evening prior to embarkation on the voyage to Monte Carlo, Silver Whisper's guests were treated to gala bon voyage dinner in the elegant main ballroom of Four Seasons Hotel. The gala dinner is among the several included events exclusively for the passengers taking the full cruise. The world cruise will call on 62 ports in 25 different countries.
'We're delighted to have the voyage depart from such an extraordinary and incredibly beautiful city as San Francisco,' said Silversea ceo Roberto Martinoli.
Prior to the world cruise Silver Whisper underwent a complete refurbishment at Grand Bahama Shipyard, adding a variety of enhancements to public rooms and suites.
