Today, Claire and Momo are taking you on a cruise on the lake for 3 hours (in yellow on the map) with the Belle Epoque steam boat «La Suisse». With the current heat here, I hope this article will help you to stay cool !
Be on time, because the boat won’t be waiting for you !
After leaving Villeneuve, they passed by the magnificent Chillon Castle that we had visited with Chloe from All Pet Voices.
First stop in Montreux :
And then came Vevey :
Claire and Momo were getting hungry ; they savored a delicious menu while enjoying the extraordinary landscape of Lavaux, with its terraced vineyard, typical of the region.
« La Suisse » arrived in Lausanne, where the greatest number of passengers boarded the boat.
The boat then sailed back in the direction of France for the second part of the cruise. The mountains descend to the lake on the French side, and there are fewer inhabited areas on the shores.
After a stop at the Franco-Swiss village of Saint Gingolph, «La Suisse» stopped at Le Bouveret, the last stop before returning to Villeneuve.
Claire and Momo had a lot of fun doing this cruise, but I was very happy to see them back in time to fill my bowl !
WOW!! Such pretty scenery!
We bet Claire and Momo had a really fun time.
Hope there were some cool breezes too 🙂
Purrs, Georgia and Julie
Oh wow, it’s gorgeous!
The vineyards of Lavaux, wonderful! So is Château de Chillon. A pity the motorway bridge partly defaces the view… The statue of Freddie Mercury in Vevey? Nice COOL trip indeed!
What a wonderful cruise!! We’re glad they got home in time to fill your bowl!
The Florida Furkids

But, a human’s job is to make sure all kitties have full tummies, so it’s good that they put you on their agenda!
What a lovely cruise! Our mom loved seeing the photos.
Wow, wow, wow! I have GOT to go to Switzerland in the summer! I’m glad your handsome self got his bowl refilled Zorro – MOL!
Oh what a beautiful cruise that is! Hopefully we’ll be able to get back to visiting across the BIG POND again next year or year after……it all depends. We had planned a trip through France for this year but – – sadly the virus arrived.
What a wonderful trip and photos! I admit it is the BOAT that is my favourite. I would love being on that boat!
WOW! Switserland is very beautiful. What a great time your mom must have had 🙂 Pawkisses for a Happy Thursday 🙂 ♥
Beautiful photos. That must have been a lot of fun. Glad they were back in time to feed you Zorro. XO
Wow, I bet they had an amazing time!
Such a lovely cruise and beautiful scenery.
We have a Geneva Lake near us too. They have boat trips around it during the summer too. You get to see the fancy houses built many years ago.
That was nice that you could get on a cruise…not here…yet…sigh…beautiful pictures of the region. Thanks for letting us tour, virtually, with you…and Zorro must have been grateful for the timely manner in which he got his bowl filled:)
So beautiful! I’m glad I can “travel” through your blog since we can’t do much over here yet.

Such an inspiring place – it’s where Mary Shelley was inspired to write Frankenstein.
So beautiful! What a wonderful cruise, and what lovely photos. 🙂
How cool is this! These are some of the best photos ever!!
Clarie and Momo saw many beautiful places on that cruise. Thanks for sharing it with us. Pixie, I’m glad they were home to feed you before you starved!
With the unnerstanding that open water makes us REALLY NERVOUS, we do thank you for the voyage. We DID look out the windows… And the buffet table was GREAT!
What a gorgeous cruise! We’re very jealous!
Chillon Castle! Lavaux! I miss it all! Hope to get back some day! I remember the fork sticking out of the lake!
