excursion boat

A passenger boat provided with a huge dance floor and spacious decks which makes a business of swallowing up populations of humanity, sometimes 3,000 to 5,000 at a single loading and paddles them around for a short period and then disgorges them. An excursion boat carries passengers only and does not provide staterooms for overnight accomodations.
