Valentine Love Cruise Party

Today is the day! Welcome everykitty and doggie! All aboard on the Love Boat cruise.


Let me introduce the staff - l. to r. front row Karl, Momo, Sassy.
back row Ruis, Roscoe and Opus. Photo by Opus and Roscoe
We are embarking at the pier near the iconic Harbour Bridge here in Sydney for the 2008 Valentine cruise.


We would sail past the Opera House, taking in the city skyline.


We are on our way to Palm Beach situated north of Sydney, a truly spectacular stretch of coastline.

The bar is now open for drinks. Please make yourselves comfortable in the various lounges. All offer good views and those of you who wish to take advantage of the sunny weather should go up on the open deck.



Canapes are going around.....


Please enjoy the views as we head out the head of the harbour. On arrival at Palm Beach, lunch will be served.


Lunch is served.... There are salmon platter, cold meats platter, sushi and sashimi, meat balls in ricotta sauce and prawn salad..........


As dessert, please feel free to savour the valentine candies brought by my sissy Sassy for the occasion.


She has also brought gifts for everyone and, of course, Champagne for the occasion. Thanks Sassy!!!!!!




After lunch everyone can relax on the lounges or go on shore for a look around. We will be back with part 2 - the romantic dinner party for all and I will post some of the photos of the kitties and doggies who attended.

Pablo has just turned up and volunteered to take whoever wishes to go ashore and explore the soft white sandy beaches and try out the famous local burgers and shakes.




Please remember that my sissy Asta has brought along some Valentine cookies for afternoon tea and there are of course champagne flowing all day.

Those of you who are tired or want to snuggle down with their valentines can use some of the lovely pillows that Asta thoughtfully brought. The sun is warm and it's lovely on deck.

Oh boy! Sissy Asta is here with my Momo sissy and me!!!! This is great!!!! I cannot believe my eyes are seeing all this food. I think I should have brought clothes that aren't so tight fitting. I don't know where to start. I think I will start at the far end and eat I mean work my way to the end of the food table. The view from the boat deck is fabulous. It is so nice to be in warm weather for a change. No snow here, yeah! Hey Asta is your mommie and daddie coming tonight? And I must say Stanley is so nice, I am glad that he came along. Too much fun!!

MoMo said...

Hi Sissies, so glad you two are here! I can always count on the support of my sissies! Charlie is around too. She is fussing a bit with her dress.
Stanley, don't be shy. We girls are a bit rowdy when we get together.

Hi Momo, fanks for everything. Dr Tweety was so happy and grateful you could help out since his Mommee couldn't be there to help him. And me too!

Oh it all looks tasty. Very tasty. Where should I start????

Tanti baci and buon san valentino to you!

We know we are on staff, but before get to work maybe just a litte snack...or two.

Opus and Rosoce

Kaz's Cats said...

G'day Momo, Thanks for dropping in and reminding us about the cruise. We would have been here earlier, but 'someone' who shall remain nameless was late getting home from work to turn yhe computer on for us. The main thing is that we're here now, so we're just grab a bite or three to sustain us. Then we might gave over at the famous Palm Beach - thanks to Pablo for mentioning that 'Home and Away' was filmed there. Our Mum had no idea that Palm Beach was 'Summer Bay' - she really needs to get out more.

This is one cool harbour cruise,

Sultanfus and Guy said...

Happy Valentines Day! You kitties sure do put out a good spread- Can't pull Guy away from all the food! YUMMY!

Cat Naps in Italy said...

We are having so much fun on this big boat! Roscoe is feeling a little sea sick. I am going to take him back to a cabin so he can lay down for a while. I'm not so sure it is sea sickness, it MIGHT have something to do with the tray of shrimp he ate (or should I say trayS).

Buon San Valentino everyone!

Opus (and sea sick Roscoe)

Asta said...

MoMo said...

Hi, efurryone! I am back on board. Thankyou all so much for coming. It's great to see so many kitties and doggies here enjoying themselves.

The Chatzy room is open. Please check the Cat Blogosphere to click on the site and for the password.

MoMo said...

Great to see you back Asta! Teleport in and out as you like from your ski party. Don't miss our formal dinner tonight - the menu is specially prepared for us and many of the kitties are going to dressed up to the nines for the occasion.

MoMo said...

Hey, Roscoe, are you alright? Is there a doctor on board? Dr Rocky from Artsy Catsy and Dr Tweety are supposed to be here. Dr Tweety is quiet because her typist is away. I shall look for them and get back to you!

Alasandra said...

We will be by the Chatzy room as soon as our typist returns. She has to take youngest son to his meeting and then go buy some food. Good thing we are on this lovely cruise where we have plenty to eat and drink

MoMo said...

I beg Dr Tweety's pardon. It should be 'his' typist. My typist is overworked and craves pardon for her mistake.

Name: Mr. Hendrix said...

wow! this is wonderful! I wish I could stay for the whole cruise, but my mommy is sick so I have to take care of her. You have all done such a wonderful job. Mommy said I could stay for a while since I've taken such good care of her the last few days.
I wish my sweet Brandi could be here but her blogger isn't working. sigh.
Can I get anyone some snacks from the buffet?

divakitty said...

Have a Bunderful Valentine's Day!

JB's Big World said...

That's amazing! How do I get on the ship? Do they have salmon?
--JB
P.S. Happy V-Day!

Karl & Ruis said...

Oh boys, this so much fun! And so many friends... Ruis ate himself full with the Valentine cookies and Karl, hahaha, the salmon and sushi were not safe for him.
Sassy, we are not sure Emil comes tonight, but maybe we can dance with you!?

Name: Mr. Hendrix said...

Hey MoMo! Mommy got me an outfit for tonight! Stop by my bloggy and check it out!

I feel like I fit in better at this fantastic party.

Jan said...

Sorry I've been so quiet today. I always feel a bit overwhelmed among such opulence and then I overeat to "relax." So I had to walk off all that scrumptous food to make room for the fabulous dinner coming up.

Oh, do I see shrimp? Oh, no! I'm turning into Buddy and Samaritan - a bottomless pit. Maybe just a couple.

Name: Mr. Hendrix said...

I brought some fresh mixed niptinis to share. I made it from my fresh nip plant. Can I get anyone anything?

Karl & Ruis said...

Fresh mixed niptinis? That's sounds great, Mr. Hendrix. We LOVE niptinis!!:-)

MISS PEACH >(^.^) said...

Ahoy mates and G'day to everyone here on the ship! I am a bit late but I made it and I see my Mickey is here too! How about a quick stroll out on the deck to see the surrounding sights. then I would like to have a nice cuppa tea and some delish sweets....those chocolate cat friendly kind of candies. I fear if I eat toooo many, I might pop out of my lovely red velvet dress hee hee!
SO lovely to be here with all of you this wonderful Valentines day!

We go to the lower deck, guys. We need some sleep first, maybe we come back later... so save some food and champagne, hahahha

Karl & Ruis

PS -- thanks Miss Peach for keeping an eye on Emil and Djenna. When Djenna saw Emil, she ran after him to the buffet.

Sassy Kat said...

Emil I am here, I don't see why ya cannot stay for the dance tonight. Let's try not to run into Karl & Ruis OK.

Sassy Kat said...

Hey Emil! Not too sure it is polite to call another kitty cute when ya are at a party with somekitty that ya asked to be your Valentine for the day, wow!

MoMo said...

Welcome, Miss Peach and efurrykitty! I have been remiss as a hostess. Too busy running around getting things organized. Plenty of food, snacks and drinks. Please enjoy yourselves!
