We live in a beautiful country and this is a fabulous way of getting off the beaten track without roughing it too much.

    Cruise Circle for Solos: Explorer of the Seas
  • '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.'

I loved the included boat cruise to Schooner Island and the opportunity for snorkeling and the people of Fiji made it a most enjoyable and happy holiday. The resort was amazing and I would return there again. So thank you for organising solo traveller group holidays.'
