TESTIMONIALS

'A great trip to experience the world of cruising.'

Peter L, 51 years, Sydney, NSW

'I told everybody this was the best cruise I have done due to the Radiance being a beautiful ship and the 16 I travelled with were the best. My cabin buddy was great and I would highly recommend a cruise / holiday with Encounter.. could not have been better I made some lovely friends who I will keep in touch with .'

Robyn, Adelaide, SA

'South Pacific cruise on Explorer of the Seas is a great way to bring in the New Year. Mystery Island and Isle of Pines are great destination. Never felt alone travelling with a solo group. Everyone is welcoming. You're also free to do your own thing if you prefer. Highly recommend cruising with Encounter Travel.'
