About Karen

I have 29 years of experience as a travel advisor, and specialize in tours and luxury cruises via ocean and river. I love to travel myself and have traveled the globe extensively visiting some of the world’s best places like Holland, Germany, Austria, England, Scotland and the Caribbean.

My favorite destination? Amsterdam, because of the people, food and architecture. I also aspire to one day visit Antarctica and South America. Whatever is on your travel bucket-list includes, I would love to help you fulfill your own travel dreams.

Karen eased us non-technical people through the app process and Covid protocol requirements as well as assuring us that all cruise details were completely attended too. She made sure our cabin is well located with good access to all parts of the ship.
