    It looks good. May I suggest for SEO reasons that you change the way you link to a
    page titled, "index.htm"? Instead of using: .com/index.htm - you can simply use: / that
    way, your Google PR will be applied to the root domain, and not the html file itself.

    Why is that important? Simply because if you ever change the site to PHP, or .htm to
    .html, you will loose the PR, as only the PR will be displayed when the .htm file is shown
    as the link.

    Also, it
    seems you used Dreamweaver to create the site as "XHTML 1.0 Transitional",
    but the XHTML markup is invalid. You need to close tags, such as the meta tags, with
    the closing / :
     <meta name="content-language" content="en-us">
    should be:
     <meta name="content-language" content="en-us" />
    Sorry if I get technical - it's in my blood :crazy:

    Lot's of great infos. I would change navigation buttons and pages background.

    Also, Sail cruise order form can be much much better with just a touch of CSS.

    Looks good to me as well. A visualy pleasing layout and colour scheme.
    Will require a full blown Optimisation exercise to please Google and co.

    Reference to what martin says, in DW I set the default DTD to:
    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"

    Providing you don't need the 'virtues' of XHTML, I find when DW uses this DTD, it 'virtualy' eliminates the non-compliant code that DW can generate by the bucket full.

    The other thing I would reccommend you do, is move (as much asyou can)the Javascript and CSS into external files.

    The document structure requires sorting. For example you have multiple apearances of H1's on the Home Page and these are actualy Nav Links. etc.
