Get to the docks and find Sam
Start by meeting Salieri on the first floor of the bar and hearing of his plan to murder a councilman called Ghillotti during his birthday party at the steamer ship.
Get out of the bar, get in any vehicle and travel to the docks adjacent to the moored steamer. Get out of the vehicle and enter the dock area where many of the guests invited to the party are already residing. Sam stands by the wall of the building on the left.
Find the unconscious sailor
Go inside the building and find the toilet. Unconscious sailor lies in one of the cabins. Open it and order Tommy to wear the disguise.
Return to Sam and follow him towards the steamer entrance. Once aboard, the ship will sail away and you have to continue the mission while being at sea.
Ask the crew about the Janitor
Stay on the same level of the steamer where you started this part of the mission. Tommy can talk to a few different sailors. Ask any of them about the janitor's whereabouts.
Talk to the janitor.
Go down to the lower level of the steamer. You find the janitor in the engine room. You will learn from him that the gun is hidden in the restroom at the aft part of the steamer. Right next the door lies the key needed to open the toilet door.
Find the gun
Return to the next level and head towards the toilet. Just before Tommy reaches it, he will be recognized by one of the bandits – defeat the enemy in melee combat. Thankfully, the opponent doesn't poses any additional or special skills.
After knocking out the thug, open the toilet and retrieve the revolver.
Find a vantage point
Use the next stairs to reach the top deck of the steamer. Go at the opposite end of the steamer to reach the vantage point. Notice the podium from which Ghillotti will be making a speech.
Wait for fireworks and kill Ghillotti
Do not lean out from behind the railing prematurely in order not to get noticed by the councilor or his bodyguard. You have to wait patiently for Ghillotti to deliver the entire speech, which will be followed by a fireworks display. After the mission objective has been updated, lean out from behind the railing and shoot the target a few times (a single hit may not be enough).
Escape to speedboat
You have to go in the opposite direction. You will come across some mobsters. While attacking the first group of gangsters, make sure you don't get too close to the fireworks. In a small room with a steering wheel you can find a first aid point.
Collect a better weapon dropped by one of the enemies (like Tommy Gun) and go down to the lower deck. You have to keep breaking through the entire steamer. Head for the lower decks and take every opportunity along the way to take cover.
Ultimately, you need to get to the location shown in the attached screenshot. Get rid of the opponents in the area and quickly run to the railings. Tommy will automatically jump over it and land on the speedboat. A successful escape from the steamer will complete this mission.
