Holiday & Christmas Parties

Mariposa Cruises has the perfect solution for your holiday parties. Whether you are planning your office holiday party, a pre-Christmas celebration with friends or are looking for a unique holiday season excursion with your family, our winter cruise program offers holiday season packages as well as special events and public dinner cruises for the perfect yuletide backdrop to your holiday merriment.

Enjoy the winter scenery when you come aboard a Mariposa Cruise this holiday season. There’s something magical about cruising the Toronto Harbour in winter and rediscovering the city after it has been blanketed in snow. Nothing quite compares to seeing the magnificent Toronto skyline lit up like a Christmas tree as you cruise along the Toronto Harbour at night.

Our holiday party packages look after all the details for you, complete with festive holiday party décor, full-buffet menu and DJ. Choose between hosting a private holiday party with our Winter Wonderland package or have us tailor a holiday party specific to your needs.

Our Winter Fleet

Mariposa Cruises operates two vessels during the winter months, the Captain Matthew Flinders and the Northern Spirit. Both cruise ships offer warm, spacious interiors perfect for entertaining large groups and functions and can accommodate for over 300 guests each. Each vessel is fully heated and equipped with full sound systems, full service kitchens (galleys), fully stocked bars and is tastefully appointed with festive holiday décor to accommodate all of your holiday party needs. Our award-winning catering and hospitality is unmatched on the Toronto Harbour. Coupled with the distinctive Toronto city views – a holiday season cruise is an unforgettable experience for you and your guests.

Our staff had a wonderful Christmas Party aboard the Northern Spirit. The roast beef was fantastic. The hospitality staff were friendly and understanding. The Captain & First Mate were excellent navigators as we were busy dancing and had no idea the boat had docked until the lights came on. Our staff were dancing and having a great time. Our staff always said they didn’t want to go downtown during the hectic holiday season but they really loved being on the Northern Spirit. We had a great time.
