Effective August 29th, 2018 Mariposa Cruises is pleased to announce it has been acquired by leading US Cruise operator Entertainment Cruises.
“Entertainment Cruises’ commitment to extraordinary experiences and relentless focus on quality is a great cultural and commercial fit for our business,” said Jim Nicholson, President and CEO, Mariposa Cruises. “We will benefit from a level of scale and scope that supports our ambitions, and better equips us for the future – more so than if we had continued to pursue a standalone path. I feel excited for Mariposa under their leadership.”
Mariposa Cruises President and CEO Jim Nicholson has stepped down and Cindi Vanden Heuvel – the current Vice President and a 27-year veteran of the company – will step into the Vice President / General Manager position.
Mariposa Cruises continues to operate under its own brand and will remain headquartered at its home base in the heart of Toronto’s Waterfront at Queen’s Quay Terminal Building.
