I would definitly go with a domain name without the hyphens as opposed to with. Our old domain name had a hyphen in it and it become difficult to tell people our website address over the phone. You would be surprised how many people don't know what a hyphen is, or get confused when they see it. So we would explain to them that it is "that dash thingy." Eventually we decided it would be a good idea just to get a different domain name.

>>OK - Search engines give weight to keywords in your domain. Is it better to have a domain that is www.cruise-ship-travel.com - or - www.cruiseshiptravel.com. It would seem to me that cruiseshiptravel would be read as one word which is not a keyword.
