Our 4th Cruise on Encounter since restart.
We loved our cruise to PNG few years back on P&O and this one was just as good ( except one island short of last).
The main reason was the same as last, the people you meet and make friends with on this cruise.
We booked a guaranteed internal and ended up in 14253 which was great as nice and quiet and short walk to pantry....ha ha. The cabin had some minor faults like draws sticking, bed mattresses were old and dipped, hair dryer would not come out of holder without a huge effort and hot water was a bit cool at times. But overall good and stewards were great.
You need to ask for tissues and face washers.
