Valentine Love Cruise Dinner Party

Hope efurryone is enjoying the cruise. Now it's time to head back to Sydney via the beautiful Rose Bay, so named because there were wild roses all over the shores of the bay when the settlers first came. Here are some photos taken by Sassy on the way back, of herself, Opus and Roscoe.



By the time we reach Sydney, the dusk has set in and the lights of the city are just coming on.



The guests have all retired to get ready for dinner and the dancing tonight. When you are ready please come to the lounges to enjoy the views and have some cocktails before dinner. There are milkshakes and non-alcoholic drinks as well, specially prepared by Charlie.





Dinner is served in the restaurant. There is a selection of meat and seafood as main courses and a special mousse as dessert for the occasion.




For those who can't make up their mind there is a dish with a combination of seafood and meat.


Dessert of Mousse Valentine is specially commissioned by Asta.
Don't forget the champagne....

After dinner we can retire to the lounge for coffee, cognac and port before the dance ....


Chocolates, anyone? Compliments of Sassy......



The mancats are ready to dance the night away. First on the scene are Karl, Ruis, Emil and Mr Hendrix as they make their entry into the disco parlour...

This is what I have been waitin for all day long. Tonight's dance and seeing everycat/doggie dressed up. I am not sure if ya have more stuff for tonight to munch on or if we had more for lunch? I am goin to have to dance all night to work off all of the food. I must go and see if Emil is here for the dance. There was some question as to if he could stay. I am happy to say that I see Percy is still here along with the Italian, Opus & Roscoe, and Karl & Ruis. How nice everycat/doggie looks. This has been fantastic, thanks Momo for hostin this wonderful event!

Sassy Kat said...

You all look soooo gorgeous! What a great cruise, Momo! I'm having such a good time, I hate to think of my poor human, slaving away at her work with no sausages! (I'll save her some cognac!)

So much fun to be in blogland at the same time!!

Now which of you delicious kitties shall I dance with first? (my human loves to dance, so she taught me from the time I was a puppy, not having any humans talented enough to dance with, you know!)

What a WONDERFUL dinner party! So glad that Roscoe got over his travel sickness. I think Asta's motion-sickness-kisses are what did the trick!

Dearest Momo! Who wonderful of you to host such a romantic valentines day even for all of us. Dr. Tweety will be thrilled that you did such a splendid job!
Every attention to the tiniest detail was paid! I never smelled roses so lovely as in the Rose Bay garden where Mickey and I had our portrait taken.
I feel like a queen and thank you again for the invite to gather with friends from the world to celebrate LOVE!
