16 January 2012 | Ft. Lauderdale and Miami
Last week my parents arrived for a visit onboard Diesel Duck in Ft. Lauderdale. Mom, 84 years young and Dad, 87 are enthusiastic company we try to keep up with. On an excursion on the Jungle Queen, Mom took to the wheel on the upper deck, but to actually steer a ship, we let her steer Diesel Duck along the Intracoastal Water Way, where Steven Spielberg’s yacht the “Seven Seas” was moored.
The “Seven Seas” ship is 282 feet long, keeps a crew of 26, accommodates 12 guests, has a heli-pad, gym, spa, massage room, cinema, an infinity pool with a 15 foot glass wall that also becomes a cinema screen. She was built for $200 million, but you could rent her for only 1.3 million a week.
