Gearing up for Fall & Winter Cruise Season: A day in hospitality training

Recently our Hospitality Department hired a small group of staff see us through to New Year’s Eve.  September Orientation consisted of a small group of new hires. Very different from April Orientation, during which we welcome and train our crew in large numbers, this orientation session was smaller and afforded us the opportunity to take a more experiential, hands-on approach to introducing our new hires to Mariposa Cruises.

Tis the season to plan your holiday season social calendar

DSCN3266The season of goodwill, generosity, indulgence and merriment is no sooner here before it is over.

The holiday shopping rush will soon be in full swing and your calendar will be quickly filling up with parties and family get-togethers.
