When you gaze out into Boston Harbor these days, you might notice a new jewel on the water. It's no giant diamond, though; it's just the Bateaux fresh off its recent $2.5 million renovation. The stately sightseeing ship ferries passengers along Boston's shores aboard three indoor decks that hold up to 600 people. However, in addition to taking passengers past city landmarks such as the USS Constitution and the Seaport District, the ship contains some picturesque sites of its own; amenities include sleek full-service bars, dance floors with live DJs, and even a rooftop deck. Thanks to panoramic windows, guests can retire to the ship's lounge while still taking in the postcard-worthy views. There are even onboard activities, including communal games such as tabletop shuffleboard, giant Jenga, and bag toss.
