Riverboats are hardly a desired destination.  Thanks to the M/V Aria that is all about to change, or did change in April of 2011 when this astonishingly, awesome river boat set sail.

Don’t be fooled by M/V Aria’s 147 foot length – it can accommodate up to 32 passengers.  That boils down to 16 cabins and a set of amenities fit for a king.  And by king we mean 240 square feet of opulence complemented by a giant picture window in each cabin that greets guests every morning with a panoramic view of the Amazon river.  Those traveling in a pact, or a family, can find extra space by opting for the 4 room suites that can be interconnected, which provides almost 1000 square feet of space. Other amenities include air conditioning, private baths, luxury toiletries, fine linen bedding, an outdoor jacuzzi, indoor lounge, exercise room and more.

Expect a one night stay to set you back about $1000-$1500.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
