BlueWater Publishing

The principals of BlueWater Publishing have been publishing cruisebooks, DV items, and Achievement Certificates for the US NAVY and USMC for over 25 years.  We are honored to continue to be a part of providing those who serve, and their families, a truly limited edition keepsake documenting their legacy of service to our country. Over the years, we have come to appreciate and realize that a cruisebook will be more important than ever as the years go by, and we work hard to make sure each and every Sailor or Marine has an opportunity to be included and receive a book. We even maintain a library of past cruisebooks and never hesitate to replace a lost or damaged cruisebook at no cost to the service member.

We are committed to the innovative use of technology, team-based manufacturing and extraordinary customer care to bring your cruisebook to you on time and on budget. We provide a complete publishing experience designed to help you and your staff make the most of your memories. Ours is a comprehensive program that brings people, technology, and experience together.

Our staff includes graphic artists producing thousands of unique page designs, photographers who travel the globe photographing crew portraits, and an office staff dedicated to ensuring your cruisebook publishing experience exceeds your expectations.

We would be honored to work with you to produce a cruisebook the entire crew will be proud of!
