My Background

Anthony Adler is one of the travel industry’s most respected names. He and his wife, Kristy, have founded large travel organizations and have been directly involved with many of the most iconic travel events in the last two decades. Their experience covers many facets within the hospitality universe. They have taken their children, now teens, to spectacular resorts in the U.S., as well as to capitals of Europe and Asia. They have sailed the seas, and covered land on trains and elephants. From museums to white-sand beaches, their adventures have been diverse.

Anthony serves on various Virtuoso committees, including the prestigious Marketing Committee. Anthony and Kristy have served on the advisory boards of various travel companies including Royal Caribbean International, NCL, and Holland America Line. The couple has championed consumer protection laws in California, and Anthony served a term as treasurer of the state’s Travel Consumer Restitution Corporation. The Adlers co-founded the Society of Elite Agencies, and have been featured as travel industry experts on network television, in newspapers and in magazines. Anthony has been invited to speak in Japan, Canada and other international destinations as one of the preeminent travel gurus. Kristy has recently served on the Travel Advisory Boards for Saveur and Ski magazines.

In addition to his responsibilities as President of CRUISE and RESORT, Inc., Anthony is the Editor-In-Chief of Elite Family Travel. The award-winning magazine is read by over 125,000 very high-income travelers throughout the United States.

Prior to starting CRUISE and RESORT in 2004, the Adlers, founded Cruise Fairs Of America, growing it into one of the world’s largest cruise-selling operations. Travel Services International acquired the company in 1997, creating a mammoth organization with over $1 billion in sales. The west-coast division was known for its dedication to customer service, efficiency, profitability, and high-profile national and local print advertising campaigns in major magazines and newspapers. Upon their departure in from Travel Services International in 1999, they formed Adler International Consulting Group, specializing in consumer research for the travel/hospitality and technology industries. Several of the nation’s leading cruise lines and hotel companies signed on as clients. Specific projects included consumer and trade perception studies, profitability analysis, process development, customer service guidelines for direct and Internet contacts, and technology integration.

Anthony and Kristy still work with select clients who crave the very best in travel. Much of their experience focuses on cruises, family travel, multi-generational travel, Hawaii, and custom trips to Europe, Asia and around the world. However, Anthony is quick to point out that “Luxury is not defined by location or destination.” A true professional understands that it’s about the little details, the intricacies that transform a simple tour or adventure into a personally crafted adventure that adds meaning to your entire existence.” According to Kristy, “It is not enough to see the world, it’s about coming home with memories that will fill you with joy for the rest of your life.”

Kristy and Anthony work diligently to make their clients’ dreams come true. Whether you are planning something exotic or simple, they are the ones you want orchestrating your vacation. They’re the best!
