Alice Cohen, Founder of Alice Travel, Passes Away

The travel agent community lost a legend March 6 as Alice Cohen, founder and partner of Fairfield, NJ-based Alice Travel, died on March 6 at her home after a short battle with cancer. She was 89. Cohen founded Alice Travel in 1970 in West Orange, N.J. Under her leadership, the agency grew into a highly successful business, especially in the area of cruises. "Alice was a 'Renaissance Woman,'" said Jerry Davis, president of Alice Travel and an active member of Ensemble Travel Group. "She had great foresight and understood long before others the potential for cruises, especially in the luxury category." Over the years, Cohen and her agency successfully developed a niche in bridge cruises, building a strong client following, especially in the elite south Florida market. The agency is among the top producers of several Ensemble Travel Group preferred suppliers, including Regent Seven Seas Cruises, Crystal Cruises and Oceania Cruises. "This is a passing of a legend who always supported us from the beginning. She will be missed!" said Regent President Mark Conroy.
