I read this, I thought it was interesting and I enjoyed the details.
I would have enjoyed to see some more specific notes on their culture and how they relate to each other personally. You learn a lot from society by who they consider to be a crimminal and celebratity and it is hard to get a feeling for a culture when everything is so even keel. If you spend you write a story about life at sea no reader will except that it was all smooth sailing.

"Every single prophecy ever written will come true, likely exactly as it is written. And chances are, these events will be centered around the characters and the current day. This really clashes with prophecies from the real world as they are wrapped in symbolic imagry and most never actually happen, or are so vague that the events listed could have already happened a dozen times over."
