Hello and thanks for your interest!  I'd love to share my passion for travel with you! It started at a young age with family vacations mostly to places in the eastern U.S. and the Caribbean. Then two years after college I took a job in Switzerland and that is when I really got the bug! I just couldn't see enough! Since then I have traveled extensively in Europe, China and the Caribbean and have been on most cruise lines as well!

I would love to help you make some lifelong memories. Please don't hesitate to call me at 800-381-2057. I'd love to talk travel with you!

Happy traveling,



Your Travel Specialists


I started my "traveling" career over twenty years ago as a traveler! I was actually a dental hygienist when I accepted a position in a dental office in Switzerland. From then on I have been addicted to travel. As the years past, friends and family would come to me for advice or help in planning their vacations. It took twenty years but I am finally doing what I love and feel passionate about. Now, I am a Master Cruise Counsellor with CLIA as well as a certified specialist in Swiss and luxury travel and most river cruise companies! As your local Dream Vacations specialist I hope to help you find your travel passion as well!

I am brand new to the travel industry but feel like I have been doing this for 15 years! I have always loved to travel, sometimes even "cyber traveling" when finances or vacation time didn't allow me to escape. I have finally decided to take the plunge and join Platinum Travel Associates and make my dream a reality. I have a special interest in the Caribbean, especially Aruba. Having been there 10 times, it holds a special place in my heart. I am extremely excited to start helping my clients plan and travel on their Dream Vacations!

I grew up in the UK and have lived elsewhere in Europe, South America, the Middle East and now the USA. I have traveled all my life! I find travelling to different countries fascinating and I love meeting new people, experiencing their culture and sampling the may and varied cuisines around the world. I love a beach too, preferably with warm water! I am excited to use my personal experiences in helping you plan your vacations. Looking forward to hearing from you!

I've spent the last 20+ years planning vacations for not only myself but friends and family too!   My personal travel experiences include several eastern and western Caribbean cruises/land vacations, traveling the west coast of California as well as vacationing on several Hawaiian Islands.  Most recently, I spent 13 days visiting 10 different cities in northern Italy via an escorted motor coach and just last fall I had the opportunity to visit the Spain, the French Riviera, the Amalfi Coast, Sicily and Greece via Azamara Club Cruises.

What our clients are saying about us!

If you want to be pampered and have every detail taken care of so you can relax and enjoy a wonderful trip, CruiseOne with Alicia Geiger is all you need to know. My river cruise experience on the Rhine River from Amsterdam to Basel was amazing! The MS AmaCello was a wonderful ship that provided 5-star food with lovely cabin rooms and welcoming staff around-the-clock. The add-on four day land tour was the perfect ending to this vacation. I am looking forward to the next adventure with this knowledgeable agent.

Brenda G., Shippensburg, PA


I am going on my first trip to Europe in March for almost a month stay and have been working with Alicia to make it happen.She is very knowledgeable about traveling and has made it easy for me to accomplish my dream vacation.I would highly recommend using her for what ever your travel plans are, a true professional in the travel business.Let her work her magic for you,it's the best first step you can take to book your own trip or cruise to vacation land.

Ken H., Hershey, PA


My husband and I have never done a cruise before and we were quite worried about all the details of an Alaskan Cruise/Land Tour. Ali Geiger took care of all the details, quelled all our worries, answered all our questions, got us great deals, and made an effort to know our preferences to tailor the vacation to suit our needs . She was so readily available for anything that may have arisen before and during our trip, so we never felt alone. We were so pleased with her service that we booked a second trip, this time an Avalon river cruise in Europe. Both trips ran so smoothly with Ali's help. Ali is very personable and truly cares about you and making your vacation unforgettable!

J. Douglass, Sinking Spring, PA


I wanted to surprise my husband who was turning 50 with a trip to Alaska. Ali was the perfect agent to help me prepare! She made everything easy and reminded me about all the important travel details. We took a land tour and cruise with our 6 year old son and we all had a fabulous time! Not only were the excursions great, we got to see family & friends we hadn't seen in years. I would highly recommend Ali to help anyone book a trip. She had good suggestions for the land tour & type of cruise ship. She also was available by email and phone whenever I had questions and I had a lot of them! So if you are thinking of planning a trip, what are you waiting for? Call Ali!

Lydia R., Birdsboro, PA


We have used Ali several times and the service and attention we received were top notch. Our experience and satisfaction with her has exceeded out expectations and we'll continue to travel through her.

C. Gilmer, Sinking Spring


Thanks for the #ResortForADay help @cruisesnob -we loved our day in Nassau at the Hilton on our cruise last week! Highly recommended!



Thanks Ali for helping us choose and plan a most memorable cruise! Since 7 of us hailed from a variety of locations, including 2 from out of state, having you do all the coordinating was the only way to go...We could not have pulled the trip together without your expertise. We all say we'll cruise together again...and you'll be the first person we call!!

A. Hoover, Cornwall, PA

Thanks for booking us a fantastic trip through Italy! We had a great time and I look forward to using you again! Every detail went smoothly and we really enjoyed our guides!
R. Reese, Austin, TX

Great food, timely events, excellent excursions and so many wonderful memories. Alicia you handled my 200 questions and numerous phone calls with professionalism and charm. Everything went off like clockwork including airport and hotel transfers. Hotels on return were top notch! Would be happy to recommend you!!!!!!!

R. Kope, West Chester, PA


Rhonda is the best! She did an amazing job planning our trip. She was always patient with me and all my questions, etc.... This was our first trip to Disney and we loved it. Rhonda will have our business for all future trips.

A. Chernich, Lebanon, PA

Dale and I want to share how much we appreciated your expert guidance on our recent Christmas Market cruise along the Danube (Dec 2014). Although Dale and I have traveled pretty extensively in Europe, we were not experienced with river tours, with so many aspects of the trip set up for us in advance. Usually we research and navigate everything on our own. The details you provided, the prompts and clarifications, made it easy to relax and just enjoy ourselves. We had a wonderful time.
Bev and Dale Ulrich, Ann Arbor, MI

This was a much needed getaway for my husband and I. Rhonda planned the perfect trip. The resort was top notch, will certainly go back again! Rhonda has booked two trips for us now and will be handling all future trips as well. She does an awesome job and follows up prior to and after our trip!! She's awesome!!!

A. Chernich, Lebanon, PA


Ali's travel experience is so vast that doing this job is extremely easy for her. She knows exactly where you should go, what you should do, and how you should get there. She will even plan personal guided tours for you. She is by far the most qualified agent I have ever used!

J. Mutter, Wyomissing, PA

Hi Ali,
Our cruise experience was fantastic, awesome! All four of us had a wonderful time. We all enjoyed every second on the cruise and excursions. We enjoyed beautiful views of glaciers, mountains, sea, activities and shows on the cruise and of course food. I am sure all of us have gained few pounds.
Sunil and Manisha Gandhi got a big surprise when they enetered their cabin first time on the first day. They got the upgraded cabin with a big balcony( They both were very very happy and started dancing immidiately :-) )
It was really relaxing and refreshing experience for us.
Thank you so much to you and Norwegian for taking great care of us!
Best regards,
Anjali K, Cupertino, CA

Alicia: Thank you again for your help and guidance in planning our cruise. We had a wonderful time. Our shore excursions were also great. The excursions were small groups with big professional service. We couldn't have asked for any better. They were so much fun. We will definitely be calling you again for our next cruise adventure. We would also recommend your services to everyone. Tom and June

Ali, I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed the cruise. The surprise worked beautifully and the trip was amazing. It's not a laid back cruise, it's for people who want to do things and that was exactly what we were looking for. The food was amazing at the specialty restaurants, the crew was exceptional in every respect, the cabin was very comfortable, the shows were great. Bottom line, it exceeded our expectations. Thank you for putting it together for us. We're looking forward to our next adventure!

Melissa provided very personable and professional care. She was thoughtful and anticipated and provided for every event. Melissa readily answered questions/provided guidance for the unknown. The vacation was fun and relaxing. I feel that my pleasure during this trip was largely due to the efforts and planning of Melissa; she went beyond what I expected from a specialist and I'm so appreciative of her performance.
