United States Navy Cruise Book Collection | GG Archives

US Navy Cruise Books are unofficial publications published by a ship's crew to document a cruise or deployment. The number of copies of a cruise book is very limited. Creating those books is an old tradition in the US Navy. This tradition dates back to the late s, when the crews began documenting events of their cruises. A major difference compared to today's cruise books is that the early log books, as they were called, covered a period of up to two years which was the common period for a standard deployment at that time. It is estimated that by now, almost 10, different US Navy cruise books have been published and the number of collectors is constantly increasing The cruise books displayed here are part of my own collection. A few books, however, have been donated to me by visitors of the website.

A cruise book is a yearbook -style publication often produced by ships of the United States Navy upon completion of a long deployment typically six months or more. The books typically contain photos of all the people who were aboard during the cruise, usually grouped by their division or department. There are often candid photos as well, showing the people at work aboard the ship. Often there is a map or a description of the ship's travels during the cruise, and there are almost always pictures taken at the various ports of call. On large ships, the books are produced on board by the ship's Morale, Welfare and Recreation department and Public Affairs staff, and are then printed ashore by printing companies that specialize in such services.
