Meet Your CruiseOne TRF Cruise Hosts

Mark Karber - President

Mr. Karber has a professional background in numerous types of technical positions, including website design, online marketing, computer desktop support, along with a long and successful work history of assisting people and solving their needs.

The genesis for Karber & Associates came about one day as he was daydreaming about traveling while working at his previous mundane job. Although his job provided a comfortable living, it dawned on him that he had reached his mid-40’s and had not yet traveled to most of the destinations on his bucket list! He realized that while he had been dreaming of seeing the world for a long time – time was simply passing by while he sat behind a desk.  Since owning a business was another of his long-time dreams, Mark decided that by combining the two dreams – the desire to see the world and business ownership – along with the desire to help others, a perfect marriage would result. And in 2010 CruiseOne - Karber & Associates was born and the rest is history!


Mark has been designated as an Accredited Cruise Counselorr by the Cruise Line Industry Association (CLIA). His favorite cruise was visiting 5 Hawaiian Islands on the NCL Pride of America.

"Michael and I have had an absolute blast on all of the TRF cruises. We're going to do everything possible to make the next one even better. Can't wait to see all of you onboard"!

Michael Lance - Vice-President
