Meet the Crew – Cruise Manager Allison Batic

Meet-the-CrewAt Mariposa Cruises we strive to exceed expectations and provide our guests with the highest levels of quality and service. It’s what sets us apart from our competition and why we are recognized as Toronto’s best recreational cruise by Consumer Choice Award and voted one of the top attractions in Toronto by Trip Advisor. It would be impossible to achieve this without the dedication and hard work that each of our team members exemplifies. For this reason, we want to celebrate our team members and let you get to know them a little bit better.

This month we would like to introduce you to one of our Cruise Managers Allison Batic.


A Toronto Halloween Night Out on the Haunted Harbour

Haunted Harbour Halloween Cocktail CruiseMariposa Cruises will be serving up a frighteningly fun alternative to a Halloween night out in Toronto with their Halloween Cocktail Cruise.

Once again Halloween will fall on a Saturday night this year, so there are no excuses to stay home, unless of course you are afraid to set foot outside during All Hallow’s Eve.

You could sit at home handing out candy to little trick or treaters and watching a marathon of horror movies or better yet come aboard the Captain Matthew Flinders for an evening of adults only Halloween fun out on the Toronto Harbour. (more…)

Toronto Date night cruising on the Northern Spirit

Mariposa Cruises’ guest Kaylin Fitzsimons recounts her Toronto date night aboard the Northern Spirit for a  Dinner Cruise on the Toronto Harbour with her boyfriend.

Northern Spirit Toronto date night

Wow, wow & wow! This was our first time on a cruise with Mariposa and it was amazing. We are often near the waterfront and see the beautiful lake sparkling in the sun. We have always talked about going on a dinner boat cruise and finally one day we planned it and boy are we glad we did!

Our fingers were crossed that it would be a mild, dry and warm summer evening. Luckily we got just that. We boarded the Northern Spirit Cruise ship from the Queens Quay port and we were in such awe with the size of the ship up close. We were greeted by the Captains and friendly staff when we arrived and entered the white doors to the main dining room and bar area.


Plan the office holiday party with minimum hassle

Get all decked out for the office holiday party without the stress.

It’s that time of year again. The leaves are starting to change, a chill is starting to set in the air and while the first flake of snow has yet to hit the ground, it’s not just Santa’s elves who are working away at creating a memorable holiday season in the months to come. In just about every office, there is usually at least one person who is tasked with planning the annual office holiday party.


They are the unsung heroes, who on top of their regular workload are laden with the responsibility of creating an event to boost company morale and spread holiday cheer. After all the annual office holiday party is often the launching point to everyone’s holiday season. While there will be many events to follow throughout the festive season, it is always the hopes of the office holiday party planners that theirs will be remembered as the shining star of the holiday season rather than the dud or office joke.
