We would just like to thank all of our customers for 2020 for both their patronage and for their service to our country. It has truly been a pleasure serving you. We look forward to continuing our valuable service to all of our veterans and their families in 2021
For our new customers, welcome to Classic Cruise Book Reproductions, your best source for locating and obtaining quality reproductions of Navy cruise books dating from the 1920’s to present.
We are a disabled veteran-owned small business who takes pride in providing our customers the best possible service and want to ensure you are completely satisfied with your purchase. If for any reason you are not completely satisfied, we will gladly give you a full refund, less shipping and handling. We can make this promise because we know you will be pleased with the final product.
As Navy veterans we know the significance of these books and what they represent. So whether the book is for your personal use, medical/legal claim, or just a gift for someone special, we will do our best to ensure you receive a high quality product that you will be glad to show off to family and friends.
We have access to the Navy Department Library cruise book collection located at the Washington Navy Yard in Washington, DC, which holds more than 1,000 books, and we have also partnered with the largest European website (www.navysite.de) which holds U.S. Navy cruise books. Between the two we have a vast collection of available books for reproduction. This collection includes ships, CB (Construction Battalion) units, RTC (Recruit Training Command) and aviation cadet books (see attached lists of current holdings). Our listings are updated monthly so please keep checking it if your book is not on our list.
We can also reproduce any cruise books or documents that you may already own that you would like to reproduce for your family and friends. We can provide both digital and hard bound copies of your book at discounted prices. Please contact us for more details and pricing. We do not harm your books in any way and only keep them long enough to get them scanned in.
All cruise books held by the Navy Department Library are donated by the public so there is a possibility there may be some writing in them, slight wear damage, or a picture cut out in some instances. If that is the case, we will notify you immediately and discuss your options.
So if you are in the market for a Navy cruise book you have reached the right place. We are here to help you fill in the missing pieces. Please send us a request via our website or call us directly at (703) 897-4737 (Office) or (703) 447-7160 (Cell) and leave a message. We normally respond to requests within 24-48 hours.
We also perform research and retrieval of ship's deck logs from the National Archives in College Park, MD. With the recent passing of the Blue Water Act of 2019 many service members may now be eligible for VA disability but might require copies of ship decks logs to verify they were in certain locations. If you would like to obtain copies of deck logs for your ship, please give us a call and we can discuss your options. Our fee for research is $35 per hour (with a two-hour minimum) plus $0.40 for any copies made).
Last, but not least, we have just added a "Guest Book" page where you can leave comments. If you are so inclined, please leave us any comments, good or bad, to let us know how we can improve our site or to leave feedback for an order you received. This will help us continue to improve the way we do business with our customers.
