The weekend is here and that means it's time to share your Royal Caribbean photos! Each week we invite our readers to share their favorite Royal Caribbean photos with all of us, so here we go!

We begin our photos with this shot by Valerie Schuerlein "holding up" Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas, while onboard Harmony of the Seas.

Here is Quantum of the Seas in Labadee, taken by Alberto Bolognesi.  

Here is a shot of Quantum's sister ship, Anthem of the Seas, by Eric Hoefman off the coast of CocoCay.

Megan Mathews sent this photo of Empress of the Seas next to Liberty of the Seas in Cozumel.  Quite a difference in size!

Here is a look at how Becky Bowen spent one evening on Allure of the Seas.  She has my seal of approval!

Here is another photo from two Royal Caribbean ships in Cozumel.  This one is by Michael Bonham of Allure of the Seas next to Liberty of the Seas.

Dave Rimington took this photo from Bora Bora while on Radiance of the Seas.  Definitely looks like another beautiful day in the South Pacific.

I think this was a great collection of photos this week and of course we want to see your photos too!  Use this form to send us your best Royal Caribbean photos and we will feature them in an upcoming blog post!

Friday is here and we are sharing our readers' favorite Royal Caribbean photos, because who does not enjoy a "virtual escape" to a Royal Caribbean cruise? 

Put your sunglasses on in your cubicle, and enjoy this week's edition of Friday Photos.

Our first photo is from Fatima of sunset in the Mediterranean while aboard Rhapsody of the Seas.

Here is a great shot of the water slides on Harmony of the Seas by Sarah Plazak, which was taken shortly after Harmony of the Seas left port in Port Everglades. 

Lynn Thomas sent this photo of Oasis of the Seas while docked in Falmouth, Jamaica.  Look at the size of the ship relative to the buildings in the port!

Here is the view from Cynthia Barbour's cabana in Labadee, which looks like the perfect way to spend the day. In fact, it is my favorite spot on Labadee!

Our next photo is of Susan Widdowson dipping her toes in the Mediterranean, right before Harmony of the Seas made her transatlantic crossing.

Here is a photo from a gondola excursion through the canals of Venice that D J Ep took last year. 

We wrap up this week's edition with this photo by Mark Reed and his girlfriend on their first day on Harmony of the Seas.

Thank you to everyone who shared their Royal Caribbean photos this week, and if you want to share yours, please use this form to send them in for a future Friday Photos post. Happy weekend!

While not scientifically proven, we believe enjoying Royal Caribbean photos at the beginning of a weekend leads to an awesome weekend.  With that in mind, we present this week's batch of Royal Caribbean photos that our readers shared with us.

This week's Friday Photos edition will be slightly different because the web browser crashed as we were writing up this week's post, and while we have copies of all the photos, we lost the names associated with them.  We always want to properly attribute photos here, so if your photo was used, please post in the comments and the post will be updated.

Our first photo shows the sun setting behind Harmony of the Seas, as seen from the helipad of Independence of the Seas.  Another stunning sunset at sea.

Next is a photo of Allure of the Seas docked in Labadee, after a day filled with plenty of good times all around. 

Mike Dinsmore shared this photo of a beautiful sunset, while aboard Radiance of the Seas. There are never enough sunset photos.

It is back to Labadee for this photo of Freedom of the Seas.  Looks like a picturesque kind of day!

Anthem of the Seas and Brilliance of the Seas are in this shot, taken in Cozumel.  Notice North Star rising above Brilliance of the Seas.

Michael Poole shared this photo of his first cabana in CocoCay. Definitely a great way to spend the day while in paradise.

We wrap things up with a photo of the world's largest cruise ship, which shows in great contrast the difference in size of Harmony of the Seas and the cars parked nearby.  Quite a contrast!

Thank you to everyone who sent in their photos this week! As always, we welcome your photo submissions.  Use this form to send in your favorite Royal Caribbean photos so that we can use it in an upcoming edition. Have a great weekend!

Happy Friday and welcome to our weekly showcase of our readers' favorite Royal Caribbean photos. Each week, we invite our readers to send in their favorite Royal Caribbean photos so that we may show it off to the world.

Let us jump into this week's batch!

Our first photo this week is of Shawn Crossley's daughter, Emily, posing with their main dining room waiters on Voyager of the Seas.  

D J Epstein shared this photo of Brilliance of the Seas on the Amalfi Coast in Italy.  I love this vantage point!

Our next photo is from Vas, and it is of the Boardwalk on Harmony of the Seas.  Any photo with Sabor and a slide is good in my opinion!

Next is a photo of Navigator of the Seas in Labadee, by Lucas Freshour.  I am so ready to re-create this photo when I return there as part of the Royal Caribbean Blog Group Cruise!

Tews sent us this photo of "Paulchen" enjoying a day aboard Vision of the Seas. I have never been more jealous of a stuffed animal, than I am right now.

Stephanie Morgan sent in this photo of her and her daughter on the 3-night inaugural US sailing of Harmony of the Seas.  I was actually onboard this sailing too, although I was probably somewhere onboard eating somewhere while they explored Nassau.

We wrap up this week's edition with a special photo by Mark Reed proposing to his girlfriend  while on a stop in St. Thomas.  Mark took a private excursion to the deserted island of Hans Lollik and popped the question. I think I have some sand in my eyes...

Thank you to everyone who sent in photos this week.  If you would like your Royal Caribbean photo included in a future Friday Photos post, be sure to send them to us with this form. Have a great weekend!

We have reached Friday, and that means it is time to sit back, and enjoy a batch of lovely Royal Caribbean photos that our readers sent in.  Essentially, this is our weekly Royal Caribbean binging on photos that provide a "virtual escape" back to a cruise ship.

We begin this week's photos with this one by Chris Reardon of a gingerbread village display outside the Windjammer on Allure of the Seas.

D J Epstein took this photo of Grandeur of the Seas, as seen from the tender he rode in Grand Cayman.

Check out this photo by Allen Shaffer of Serenade of the Seas waiting for passengers to return in Akureyri, Iceland. 

Eric Hoefman has a gingerbread village photo of his own, with this one from Anthem of the Seas. That is a lot of gingerbread!

Next is a photo of the Boardwalk on Harmony of the Seas. Ken took this photo, and it looks like another busy day of fun in a very popular neighborhood.

Here is Navigator of the Seas in Cozumel, as seen by Scott Shaffer. One of my favorite ships in one of my favorite ports!

We wrap up this week's Friday Photos with this sunset photo by Greg Moore while onboard Voyager of the Seas.  It was taken near Fiji, while Greg was celebrating his 20th wedding anniversary.  Perfect!

Thank you to everyone who shared photos with us this week, and if you want to have your photos showcased, be sure to send us your best Royal Caribbean photos to be used in an upcoming Friday Photos post.  Have a great weekend!

Happy Friday, and welcome to another edition of Friday Photos, where we share with you some wonderful Royal Caribbean photos that our readers sent in.  As always, you can share your photos with us to be posted on an upcoming Friday Photos post.

Our first photo this week is from Jorge Toache of a peaceful day on Independence of the Seas.  Yup, just another day in paradise.

Ashlie shared this photo of her family heading back to Liberty of the Seas after a fun day in Cozumel.

Next is a photo by Nick from onboard Anthem of the Seas, where he was able to meet the ship's Captain.  Meeting the Captain of any Royal Caribbean ship is always such a treat!

Speaking of Anthem of the Seas, here she is again, as seen from Coco Cay.  Ken "CookingYo" Licwinko shared this beautiful photo of Anthem between two palm trees.  

If you wanted to see even more photos of Anthem of the Seas, your wish has been granted. Eric Hoefman took this photo of Anthem in Nassau, Bahamas along with many other cruise ships.

Staying with Nassau, here is Navigator of the Seas and Allure of the Seas docked in Nassau.  I love when you get to walk down a "ship canyon" like this!

Our final photo this week is from Frank Battiston of a stunning sky in Fort Lauderdale. Frank took this photo from onboard Freedom of the Seas in Port Everglades, and it looks like a great start to an even better cruise!

That wraps up this week's edition of Friday Photos. Thank you to everyone who contributed photos this week, and if you want to share your photos, use this form to send them in!

Our first photo this week is from Susan Widdowson, and it is from the bridge wing on Harmony of the Seas.  Definitely a great spot for photos!

Next we have a photo of Harmony of the Seas and Freedom of the Seas in St. Maarten, taken by Ken.  Two giants in one port!

Here is a photo by Ethel Crawford of Adventure of the Seas in Barbados.  Ethel took this shot while onboard Jewel of the Seas.

Our next photo is of Anthem of the Seas and Brilliance of the Seas in Cozumel.  Thomas Lemmer shared this photo, and you can see North Star is in the raised position too!

Check out this amazing shot by Bob Carpetner from onboard Harmony of the Seas, when all three Oasis class ships met in one spot.  

We go from the largest ship in the world to one of the smallest in Royal Caribbean's fleet.  Here is Majesty of the Seas, as seen from CocoCay.  John Kreidermacher shared it with us and it is a great perspective!

This week's batch of beautiful Royal Caribbean photos is here and it's always fun to share with all of you the great photos our readers take while on their cruise vacation.

The photos we have to show this week are fun and of course anyone can send us their Royal Caribbean photos to use as well!

Our first photo is from Michael Bonham, and it is of sail away from Cozumel on Allure of the Seas.  You can still see Liberty of the Seas docked in the background.

This is a great photo by D J Epstein of the aerial show on Grandeur of the Seas!

Check out the colors in this sunrise photo by Susan Widdowson! It was taken on Harmony of the Seas during the transatlantic crossing.

Dana Hall sent in this photo of savory bites while on Oasis of the Seas.  She noted that they had no savory bites on one night of the cruise, but the next day, the waiter brought over a whole plate full!

Next is a great photo of Liberty of the Seas backing out of Cozumel, taken by Megan Mathews.

Angela Wright shared this photo of Freedom of the Seas, which was taken from her snorkeling excursion in Grand Cayman.

We round out this week's edition with a photo of Anthem of the Seas in Labadee, taken by Thomas Lemmer.

If it's Friday, that means we are sharing our reader's best Royal Caribbean photos in this week's Friday Photos showcase.  As always, we want to include as many of our readers photos as we can, so be sure to send us your best Royal Caribbean photos too!

We begin with a photo by Michael Bonham of Allure of the Seas docked next to Liberty of the Seas in Cozumel. It is always fun when two giant ships meet like this.

Here is a photo of the Amalfi Coast of Italy, by D J Ep.  I do not believe European ports get enough credit for being as photogenic as they are.

Next is Independence of the Seas leaving Southampton by David Donnelly.  Also included in this photo is a gratuitous amount of lens flare, which will make JJ Abrams smile somewhere.

Here is a night photo of Navigator of the Seas as she is about to depart Lisbon, Portugal by 2boomerstravel.  I will never tire of how Royal Caribbean ships look at night when all the lights are turned on.

We have another night photo, this one of Freedom of the Seas in San Juan, Puerto Rico, by Alice Hoey. Freedom of the Seas stopped here because of Hurricane Matthew, and I relish any opportunity to visit Old San Juan.

Jose San Martin shared this photo of enjoying a moment of peace aboard Navigator of the Seas. Jose noted, "Voyage after voyage, it never gets old."  Well said!

Our last photo this week is by Mark Greenwald and it is of him and his favorite bartender on Grandeur of the Seas, Alex. Mark met Alex on Navigator of the Seas in 2009 and ran into each other again on Grandeur and instantly remembered each other.  

Do you have Royal Caribbean photos that you want to share?  We'd love to feature them so send them in by using our nifty submission form and maybe your photos will show up in next week's edition!
