Some know Isabella Rossellini as the daughter of Ingrid Bergman. Others remember her as the face of Lancôme, or perhaps the moody Dorothy Valens in David Lynch's Blue Velvet, or as Martin Scorsese's ex-wife. Categorizing her is as tough to do as placing her accent. To her eclectic résumé she can now add Ambassador of Silversea cruises, a post that will take her around the world for most of the year. En route to Cape Horn, she shared a few of her favorite things, on land and sea.

The Ritz in Paris is my favorite hotel. I love the swimming pool and room 511.

I would love to own a painting by Francis Bacon. His work is haunting and fascinating.

The Scandinavia House in New York has great gifts, like Marimekko tote bags.

British Airways' reclining seats should be standard on all airlines.

The first thing I look for in a new city is a zoo. But when I was in Buenos Aires, my first stop was the Recoleta cemetery. Beautiful.

On my cruise around Cape Horn I'm reading Isabel Allende's My Invented Country.

The clothes at Max Mara—always classic.

I adore Jean Georges, on Central Park West.

Recently I went to northern Kenya to visit Ian Douglas Hamilton, a conservationist who works with elephants. My kids loved it.
