We live in a beautiful country and this is a fabulous way of getting off the beaten track without roughing it too much. I highly recommend this trip for a little bit of adventure, fun and some memories which will last a lifetime.'

  • '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.'

  • 'Having the group was a bonus and gave us a good starting point for the holiday.  Within a couple of days we had balanced out the group and set up a regular meeting arrangement.  We met other solo travellers but it was nice to have the group.'

  • 'I had an amazing time in Fiji and probably would not have gone if it was not for solo travellers. 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.'

  • 'Fiji was an excellent resort holiday. Thoroughly enjoyed myself. The resort has most things you need for a great time including a night club, and the adults only wing is an excellent idea. Our Host Megan was truly the best and everything ran smoothly. It was also an excellent group of people. Wonderful company indeed. I wouldn't hesitate to book another resort stay holiday with Encounter. This was my second trip with Encounter to Fiji.'
