The food was ok but not the best. The servers were good, but he boat was very small and very cold. They have the dance floor on the top so if you go in a cold day forget about dancing.

My husband and I had our wedding on the Showboat Sep 2018. For the most part we had fun (we tried to since it's our BIG DAY) but there were many things that were a negative experience.First when we came to take a look prior to making our decision, we were speaking with a specific representative and was telling us what were included in their pricing. Then once we've made a decision to go ahead and gave our deposit (closer to our date), we were transferred to a different representative and she was telling us different story to what the first representative told us. For example, for our ceremony, initially we were told that the a White Aisle Runner and White chair cover were included in the price. Then on our 2nd tour with the new rep, we were told, this is NOT included.We've selected the Platinum package for DJ, which was the highest package, includes 3 scheduled meetings (we only had 1). This 1 meeting was also very hard to book with him. I've emailed the company and himself several times and took quite some time to get a response back. I've requested for a different DJ (since this one seemed busy and hard to cooperate with) but we were told that he's the only one available. DJ service to include service and games. We never had any games AT ALL. The overall energy from the DJ hosting considering it's our wedding was mediocre. He just seemed like he hated his job. Not typical to see a DJ not hyped or anything. His voice was very soft, our guest could hardly hear him. Some of our requested songs were played.On the day of our wedding, there were many complaints from our guests. They didn't distribute the cakes to our guests. Some guests took the initiative to get a piece of cake but majority told me afterwards that they didn't have some. We also chose the desserts of Chocolate fountain with fruits and marshmallows and this also was untouched. Our guests told us (including kids) that they tried to take some and they didn't let them (reason they gave was because we were still dancing?!?) There were also lots of leftover food which I saw was a ton left and quickly tried to put it away. When we inquired to take them home, the servers told us that they were all finished and some said they have no to go containers so which is it?!? Also we gave $1,000 deposit for host bar and within 30 minutes boarding, we saw our guests paying for their own drink. When we brought this attention to the manager on-board, she told us, it was all used already?!? Why did you not give us tabs/receipts or notify(which we were told they would do) us that they would let us know when we're coming close to finishing our deposit. It just seemed fishy overall. The main floor was extremely hot as well (NO A/C) WE WISH WE WENT WITH ANOTHER COMPANY FOR OUR WEDDING... P.S. They only gave us about 1 hour to decorate the boat prior to our wedding and they limit the amount of people helping as well. We also had to clean/remove decorations (including our guests) once we docked. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR, DON'T DO YOUR WEDDING HERE.

I went for the new years eve mariposa cruises with my bf and another couple. The weather was terrible as it was raining and windy. But the inside of the cruise was fun, delicious free appetizers, diverse group of people but sadly the cruises docked way earlier than expected my bf thinks they docked before the mid night. We wished we could have spend more time in the bay.

While I'm sure they may be a great cruise, This is my personal experience. Artist from the bad weather, service on the cruise was planned poorly. The staff were helpful but were asked to place single trays of food in the center of the boat. Which means everyone had to queue up only to realize the food is long over since there was so little of it. Bad weather also meant the deck was off limits. DJ was so so. Atmosphere was a bit dull since it's generally older folks. But we did manage to amp up the guests ourselves. Won't do it again.

Today I officiated my first wedding on a boat! What a treat it was to board the Mariposa Rosemary for a 3- hour wedding cruise through the Toronto Islands. Special thanks to Captain Rob, first mate, Kyle and service staff Reika and Loya for the cheerful welcome. Sara, the events coordinator, met us all at the boat to ensure everything was running smoothly and was very accommodating to the couple throughout the process. The buffet was plentiful and food was very good quality. The boat decor is very cute and comfortable... it's one of the smaller boats in the fleet and was the perfect size for an intimate ceremony and lunch reception. Washrooms were clean and easy to navigate. I'd highly recommend this experience for a unique and fun small celebration!
