Karen Peiffer

Denver, Colorado Travel Agent

Ocean View Cruises, a Travel Leaders Network affiliate agency

Cruise Specialist

As a young girl, hearing the stories of my parent's first cruise hooked me for life.  I couldn't imagine anything quite as romantic and adventurous as gliding across the open sea in a luxurious ocean liner.

What would I see?  Where would I go?  The world was mine!

My passion turned into a career and I have 25 years of creating memories of a lifetime for honeymooners, retirees, multigenerational families and adventure seekers.

Experiencing the destinations myself, helps me to guide you to the places dreams are made of:  I've cruised the Nile to see the Valley of the Kings, Luxor, and Karnak, watched in awe as I passed through the locks of the world's greatest industrial accomplishment; the Panama Canal.  I've sailed into the stunning ports of Venice and Civitavecchia (Rome), Mykonos and Santorini in Greece.  Two years ago, I stood on the deck of the Queen Mary II and sailed past the Statue of Liberty on route to the fiery fall colors of Canada and New England.  I've been scuba diving in the crystal water of the Caribbean and even danced with Mickey Mouse on a Disney ship.  These are just a few of the adventures that await you!

From the smallest 100 passenger sailing ships to the gigantic 4,000 passenger floating resorts, my goal is to match your expectations to the perfect ship and destination.  Allow me to assist you.

With so many cruise lines and so many ships, let me take the helm and help you complete your life "bucket list".  Earlier this summer, I planned an extensive vacation for three couples to visit Iceland and then cruise the stunning coastline of Norway;  thought to be the most beautiful coastal waters in the world.

Where would you like to go?  Let me guide you there. Welcome Aboard!

Wow, oh Wow!

Wow, oh wow!  Karen at Ocean View Cruises is the best!  Her attention to detail is beyond perfection.  I know she has experience because she has an answer for every question.  It's like she gives me a guided tour of the ship with her words.  She handles all our cruise trips and we feel confident that everything we need to know about our reservation and our trips has been covered.  It's so wonderful to put all those plans into the hands of someone who you know will actually follow through and do it right!  And, she's one of the nicest people I've ever worked with.

Karen is AMAZING!!!

Reviewed By Sam - Denver, Colorado | Traveled to
My husband and I went through Karen for our Alaskan Cruise for our one year wedding anniversary, and it was such a wonderful experience!! Karen is truly AMAZING!! She helped us from start to finish. Whenever we had questions, and you can bet we had a lot, she was always very responsive in a timely manner. The trip was for one week, and from start to finish we were fully taken care of. I never once had to be concerned about where to go, how much something cost, or what to do at the ports. All of our excursions were phenomenal! And Karen has a great tip sheet for the trip that really helped with packing! While we were on the cruise, I knew if I had any questions I could easily reach her. She insured our trip would be one for the books, and boy was she right! It was one of our favorite trips, and my husband and I cannot wait for our next cruise!!

Took Care of Everything

Reviewed By Kathy - Oklahoma City, OK | Traveled to
We did an extensive 17-day combination land/cruise trip to the Mediterranean in June of this year. Karen took care of everything. When our plane was delayed getting into London causing us to miss our connection, she was on hand to help us understand what to expect from the airlines in getting re-routed. She also contacted Holland America about the delay since they were meeting us in Venice - our first destination. It was so comforting to know that we had an experienced person watching out for us as we were bounced around Europe. The trip was fabulous. Karen is the only person we allow to book our cruise vacations. She's done several for us, and she really knows cruising.

I'll never cruise without Karen as my travel agent!

Reviewed By Kelsey - Littleton, CO | Traveled to
Karen is a truly amazing travel agent, and I'm serious when I say I'll never go on a cruise without having her by my side to help plan my vacation. I have worked with Karen for the two cruises I've taken (Alaska and Western Caribbean), and she has been there to answer every single question right away from the moment I first contact her. Her response time is unbeatable and her knowledge and experience make a HUGE difference. She personally knows the cruise lines and cruise ships in and out and can give you a very detailed answer to the many questions that come up when going on a cruise. She always makes sure to find you the right cabin (she knows the ships well enough to know how to avoid cabins below noisy restaurants, etc.), and she will work endlessly to find you amazing deals, even after you've booked your vacation! She got us an upgrade for basically nothing on both cruises that made our vacations even more memorable. Karen will be sure to give you all the tips and secrets of cruising, and she is very knowledgeable about the ports too, since she's been on so many cruises herself. I promise you won't regret booking with Karen. She truly goes the extra mile and is the most detailed person I've ever met...exactly what you need in a travel agent!

Excellent in Every Way!

Reviewed By Sara - Denver | Traveled to
We started booking cruises with Karen in 2001. We've engaged her several times since then, and she never disappoints us! She's planned trips for us alone, as well as for large groups. In every situation, she's been amazing. She is helpful in every step of the process from planning, payments, departure information and follow-up during & after our trips. Karen specializes in cruise vacations, but we've used her several times for beach vacations as well. In the age of the internet travel site, nothing compares to having a personal relationship with an agent. We have found she is able to find us better or equal pricing to any travel site. I highly recommend Karen!

Karen is the Best!

Reviewed By Rachael Jenkins - Colorado | Traveled to
Before booking my cruise I wasn't sure I needed a travel agent. After my cruise I knew I would be using Karen for all future cruises. She went way above and beyond in diligently answering any questions I had. She also gave me invaluable advice on everything from the best state room to dining options, ship details, kids activities, hotels, excursions etc. I can honestly say that our cruise was fantastic in large part because of Karen. It's so refreshing to work with someone who loves what they do and can give great advice based on personal experience. I found a friend in Karen and will definitely be recommending her to all my family and friends!!
