Go to a public server (that you have admin in) hit the Esc button and click Load level, then find the file.

if you have his world, it should be a normal folder called "World" followed by a number, to insert into your own game first rename it to a world number you haven't used yet (example, i have world 1,2 and 5 used for my own games, i would rename it to "World3" or "World4" for my own use)
and then hit the windows key+R type in %appdata% and hit enter, open the .minecraft folder and then the folder named saves, place the gamesave in there (if you dont have the gamesave yet, this is where it can be found)

"On the Mac, saves are located in ~/Library/Application Support/minecraft where "~" is your username (Your User or Home folder)." -http://www.minecraftforum.net/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=21997 second post (found it through google)

this is a very simple thing to do once you have download the file of which you want make sure its in a zip file it will have a bunch of bookspuple and blue.
steps to do this

1.start with the zip file right click and selct "extract here.
2.go to the start at the bottome left of the screen.
3.on the light blue section there will be run.(for vista and 7 just search "run")
4.type in %appdata%
5.click the .mincraft folder
6.next click the saves folder
7. drag the file you got from step 1 to that folder.
8. Subscribe to my youtube for more help   www.youtube.com/slapinthefacefilms01
9.play the world~~!!!~
(if the world number is a world you already have in the place for ex
you download a world1 and you have a world there simple change the number to a different one(:    )

wha happend to your files is that someone packed it wrong, just throw all of the 4 files (3 files and the folder to be exact) inside a folder wich you name whatever you like for a world name (this topic was before minecraft supported user chosen world names) :P

if you had the 3 files + the region folder in a folder inside the saves folder you should be seeing the contents of the map, if you are unable to find a ship as stated, then perhaps there was no ship in the first place :/

My guess is that the place i spawn (Under Water) in a BIG Ocean area is where the ship is supposed to be...but its not there and i commented on his youtube video about it and this is what he responded with:

"This problem is only to you at Sun The card works with each other, sorry."

What does THAT mean?! Lol

Also lets say...I have a MAIN world and theres someone elses world with something i want in mine for instance the Titanic i was gonna put on a separate world. If i wanted it in my MAIN world (World1) could i download other ppls stuf and put them ALL on one world or do i hav to use a different slot for everything i download?

In Alpha, you download a world, go to your downloads folder, and go to %appdata% in start. It brings you to roaming, go to .minecraft, and then drag the save file into the "saves" folder
On mac, just do library/application support/minecraft/saves paste file
