Cruise books capture the most personal memories of a Sailor's Navy career. Pictures of friends, port calls and facts about their commands can all be found within the pages. Many former Sailors lose their cruise books over time, and then desperately look for a copy in their retirement years. 

Similar to high school or college yearbooks, they are usually prepared by the crews of ships and shore units, and are filled with stories, photos and graphic artwork that document the lives of those ships or units for a specific period of time. Many photos show crew members on duty and on shore leave, portraying both the routine and the exciting experiences the Sailors have had.
