Caroline Sack Klein is one of two of Ellen’s daughters in the business, and it’s safe to say that barging is in her blood.
Inspired at a young age by dinner table conversations revolving around barging, travel, and entrepreneurial pursuits, her fate was sealed to become a Barge Lady.
In 2010, this became a reality, and Caroline brought with her nearly 10 years of sales and marketing experience. As Ellen’s protégé, she was a natural at the art and science of matching guests to barges.
These days, “La Petite”, as she is known in the industry, works closely with the 50 barges in our portfolio, reinforcing the longstanding personal and professional relationships the Barge Ladies enjoy with barge owners and crew members. Her most recent cruise was in the Upper Loire on a longtime Barge Lady favorite, the C’est la Vie.
Caroline’s many talents as a Barge Lady extend to the management and modernization of the operations side of the business, ensuring that Barge Lady Cruises delivers all the conveniences and services today’s savvy travelers expect.
Fresh and energized with ambition, Caroline is excited about the future of the business and industry. Outside of work, Caroline spends time with her husband and two children, and has a passion for fitness.
“As a protégé of The Barge Lady herself, I try to find a way to make suggestions that will improve our guest’s experience. Whether it is introducing guests to certain barges based on their wish list, or sharing a hotel recommendation, I want to add value with every interaction.” – Caroline
