The weekend is here and every Friday, we share our readers' favorite Royal Caribbean photos so that we can all enjoy a quick "virtual trip" back on a cruise.  If you want to share your Royal Caribbean photos, use this form to send them in!

Our first photo is from Scott Singer, who took this photo of the monkeys of Gibraltar while on an Independence of the Seas cruise. Looks like tourists did not excite these two.

Next is a photo by Julius Lacano from Grandeur of the Seas, where he got to see "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" while onboard his cruise.

Here is Jewel of the Seas next to Rhapsody of the Seas in Santorini, by Manuela.  This is a great perspective of these two fabulous ships!

Bente sent us this photo as they watched Mount Vesuvius during sailaway from Napoli, while on Harmony of the Seas.

Phil Partridge posted this photo of his wife, Nina, while on their balcony aboard Oasis of the Seas.

Hannah Carr was enjoying lunch in this photo from Santorini, with Jewel of the Seas in the background. Opa!

Our final photo this week is of Brilliance of the Seas in Cozumel, taken by CrennTive while aboard Independence of the Seas.  Looks like another day in paradise!

Thank you to everyone that sent in their Royal Caribbean photos and if you want your photos featured here, be sure to send us your favorite photos with this form!

Every Friday, we ask our readers to send us their favorite Royal Caribbean photos so that we can showcase them here on the blog. After all, looking back on past cruise memories is always a great way to get excited for our next cruise!

Our first photo is from Megan, just before she is about to descend down the zip line at Labadee, with Freedom of the Seas in the distance.  Look out below!

Our next photo is of Brilliance of the Seas in Santorini, by Melissa. I am pretty sure every cruise photo from Santorini comes out looking like a postcard.

Here is Jan-Arild Knutsen, who sent in a photo of himself in the belly flop competition on Radiance of the Seas. He says this is his 1930s-style swimsuit and I think that should add bonus points for this competition!

We are going back to Labadee for this next photo. It is by Nancy Ginter and it was from her first cruise.  Love how clear that water is!

More Labadee photos, you say? Here is one by Chuck Rickman from his Oasis of the Seas cruise in 2012.  Such a beautiful piece of paradise!

Stuart Weber sent in this photo of his fiancé, Judy, in St. Thomas aboard their Oasis of the Seas cruise.  Looks like she was having a great time, and who could blame her with the scenery surrounding her!

Our last photo this week is from Norman Sutton while he was onboard Quantum of the Seas, with North Star offering a terrific view at sea.  Looks like a great day!

That wraps up this week's edition of Friday Photos.  Thank you to everyone that submitted their photos, and if you would like to, please feel free to share your Royal Caribbean photos with us for a future edition!

It is Friday and with the weekend nearly here, that means we are sharing our readers' favorite Royal Caribbean photos.  Each week, we ask our readers to send us Royal Caribbean photos to share on the blog.

Who has two thumbs and enjoying a day in paradise? This guy! Roderick Jones sent us this photo from his Oasis of the Seas cruise from Barefoot Beach in Labadee.  Enjoy it!

Isabella sent us this photo of the donkeys from Santorini, Greece.  Fabulous view!

Meagan sent us this photo of Brilliance of the Seas, as seen from Cannes.  C'est magnifique!

Let's head back to Labadee with this photo by Michael Grillo, taken when he and his daughter were enjoy a summer cruise together. 

Here is a photo by Donald Barnett of one of the many towel animals their steward made during our stay on Freedom of the Seas. Love coming back to my room and finding one of these!

No Friday Photos is complete without a sunset photo, and here is one by Danielle from Grandeur of the Seas while on their way to Bermuda. Beautiful!

We are going, "old school" for this photo by John Siegmund, and it is of Crystal Olympia (former Royal Caribbean Song of America) sailing past Splendour of the Seas anchored off shore in Santorini, Greece May 2015. She still looks great!

Thank you to everyone for sharing these great photos.  If you want to include your photos too, please send them to us via this form!

Every Friday, we show off the Royal Caribbean photos that our readers have sent us in a special blog post.  Each week, we invite our readers to send us their favorite Royal Caribbean photos and we post them right here.

Without further adieu, let's jump right into this week's batch of photos!

The first photo this week is from Shawn Crossley of Explorer of the Seas viewed from atop Mount Maunganui, located in Tauranga City in the Bay of Plenty - New Zealand. That is an incredible vantage point!

CruiseNAngie shared this photo of Empress of the Seas tendering off the coast of CocoCay.  She is such a distinguished looking cruise ship and we have a live blog on Empress of the Seas that is going on right now.

We are heading to Alaska with our next photo, and it is from Ricardo Chevalier of Sawyer Glacier at Tracy Arm.  Photos do not do this glacier justice.

Here is a shot of Independence of the Seas as seen from the Rock of Gibraltar, by Marleen. The kids thought it would be funny to 'shoot' at the ship with the canon.

Donald Barnett captured this rainbow as Freedom of the Seas sailed through a rain shower.  Rainbows in photos are always a welcome sight!

Danielle found this secret hideaway at the aft of Grandeur of the Seas, where she took this photo with no one else around.  Great composition in this photo!

Our final photo this week comes to us from Blake Baldwin and it is a shot of Cuba, as seen from Independence of the Seas. Perhaps in the near future we will see much closer photos of Cuba in Friday Photos.

Would you like to submit your Royal Caribbean photos for a future Friday Photos post? Use this form to send them to us and we will feature them very soon!

Every Friday we showcase our readers Royal Caribbean photos for all to enjoy and we invite everyone to send in their favorite Royal Caribbean photos so that we can show them off too.

Without further ado, enjoy this week's batch of Royal Caribbean photos!

Our first photo is from Andre and it is of Independence of the Seas on the left and Harmony of the Seas on the right in Palma de Mallorca, Spain.  Two fabulous ships in one photo!

Danielle shared this photo of her dad, who after having spent the last several days using this statue as a landmark to remember which side of the ship our cabin was on, dad took time out to pay homage to its help.

Here is a great sunset photo by Darrell from Freedom of the Seas off the coast of Cozumel.  Yup, beautiful!

Do you know what is the next best thing to a sunset photo? A sun rise photo! Here is one from Blake Baldwin, as seen on Independence of the Seas.  Look at those colors!

Next, we have a shot of Independence of the Seas passing under the 25th of April bridge in Lisbon, by Suzanne.  Sailing under any bridge is a really fun event and what a great shot of the sun coming through the bridge!

John Siegmund sent this photo of Splendour of the Seas traversing the Giudecca Canal past San Giorgio Maggiore as she departs Venice.  This photo evokes what a European cruise is all about.

Our last photo this week comes to us from Susan Stewardson and it is of the last sunset over the Atlantic Ocean after 12 days on Quantum of the Seas.  Love these sunset photos!

Thank you to everyone for sharing their favorite Royal Caribbean photos and if you want to send in your cruise photos, use this form and we will post them in an upcoming Friday Photos post!

Every Friday we showcase Royal Caribbean photos that our readers sent in, and we have a great batch of photos to share with you again this week!

What happens when you order nothing for dessert?  Mike Dinsmore sent us this photo proof of what nothing looks like!

Jeff Covello shared with us this photo Explorer of the Seas in Alaska.  Great contrast between the ship and the mountains!

Here is another photo from Alaska, and this one is from John that was taken from his Junior Suite balcony. I cannot get enough sunset photos and this one is beautiful.

Dan Stewart sent us this photo from Oasis of the Seas right before a storm rolled in near Jamaica. Check out the colors in the sky and on the ship!

Dave shared this photo of Jewel of the Seas.  I am not sure which port this was taken in, but it is hard to deny the beauty of the lines of a Radiance class ship.

Matthias & Klaus combined their love for cruising with their love for baking.  This is such a fun idea!

Our last photo is from Tom & Diane Trudnowski and it is of sunset in Tampa, as seen on Vision of the Seas.  Gorgeous!

Thank you to everyone that shared these great photos.  Do you want your photo included in our weekly photo showcase?  Use this form to send us your favorite Royal Caribbean photos and we will be sure to show it off to the world!

Friday is here and that means so is the weekend and our opportunity to share Royal Caribbean photos that readers sent us!  Every week, we ask our readers to send in their favorite Royal Caribbean photos, so that we can feature them here.

Our first photo is of Quantum of the Seas by Anna, and taken on North Star.  What a fantastic view!

Valerie Kammerer sent us this photo of the sunset on the Atlantic. Not sure which ship this was taken from, but I cannot say no to sunset photos!

Here is a night photo from Blake Baldwin, taken on Independence of the Seas.  The ambiance of Royal Caribbean ships at night is really terrific!

Here is a photo of the town of Oia along coast of Santorini, Greece, taken by John Siegmund.  Photos of the Greek coast always seem to be so beautiful to look at, right?

It might be the middle of summer, but this photo by Susan Stewardson is still impressive to look at. It was taken on Quantum of the Seas, while the ship was in New Jersey.  Luckily, it got much warmer very quickly as the ship headed south.

Thank you to everyone that shared these great photos.  Do you want your photo included in our weekly photo showcase?  Use this form to send us your favorite Royal Caribbean photos and we will be sure to show it off to the world!

Happy July 4th to all of our American readers! Whether you are celebrating today or not, it's Friday and that means it's the weekend and it's time to share Royal Caribbean photos our readers sent in!  You can send in your favorite Royal Caribbean photos with this form, and we will include it in an upcoming post!

We begin this week's photo batch, with this shot of Coco Cay from Angela Middleton.  Wish I was spending my holiday weekend here!

Here is a creative shot of Empress of the Seas, as seen by Bob Carpenter while in Georgetown, Grand Cayman.  Great perspective!

Speaking of Grand Cayman, here is a photo of the island paradise by Blake Baldwin, taken from Independence of the Seas. Sign me up for a visit here!

Adrian Chan sent us this photo of Independence of the Seas docked in Labadee.  Look at the contrast between the ship and the water.  Great colors!

If you thought to yourself, "I would love to see more photos of Independence of the Seas," well, your wish has been granted! Here is a photo by Suzanne of her 10-year-old daughter, Rebecca, climbing the rock climbing wall. It is probably safe to say she is better at the wall than I am.

Next, is a photo of Enchantment of the Seas by Christopher Simone. This photo was taken on Coco Cay, when Christopher and his family took a walk to a point toward the far east end of Barefoot Beach. They found a pile of sand nearly 20 feet high, which got them a great view of the ocean and Enchantment of the Seas apparently plowing through the lush foliage of the inner island toward the north.

Mary sent us this photo of Adventure of the Seas, while they were visiting St. Thomas.  Looks like another day in paradise!

Thank you to everyone that sent in their photos.  Would you like your Royal Caribbean photo to be showcased? Submit your photo via this form and we will use it in a future post!

The weekend is here and we love to welcome some well-deserved time off with our readers' favorite Royal Caribbean photos.  Each week, we ask our readers to submit their best Royal Caribbean photos, so that we can showcase them right here.

Our first photo this week is from Bob Carpenter, and it was taken on the pool deck of Empress of the Seas. Bob noted he has never seen a hammock on a Royal Caribbean ship and neither have we!

Speaking of older Royal Caribbean ships, Jan-Arild Knutsen took a photo of the former Sun Viking, as they were sailing on Ovation of the Seas.  Evidently, this former Royal Caribbean ship is now functioning as a casino ship.

Here is a fun photo from Becky Bowen from Enchantment of the Seas.  That Jump Zone is a lot of fun!

Did you know Royal Caribbean allows its guests to go to Hell? Hell, Grand Cayman, that is! Blake Baldwin took this photo on a recent visit there.

 

Adrian Chan took this photo of Independence of the Seas docked in Labadee.  Wish I was there right now!

Here is a photo of Voyager of the Seas in Sydney by Darren, as they were disembarking Explorer of the Seas.  Love the sun's reflection on the water, right above the Sydney Opera House.

Lastly, we have this photo of Radiance of the Seas in Icy Straights Alaska harbor.  This photo was taken by Peter Chapman and it has a great backdrop!

Thank you to everyone that sent in their photos.  Would you like your Royal Caribbean photo to be showcased? Submit your photo via this form and we will use it in a future post!

Enjoy this week's photo set!

Our first photo is of Allure of the Seas in San Juan, Puerto Rico by Andre. This was taken during its stop there that our blogger, Michael Poole, was live blogging from her!

Timothy Griffin shared this photo of Oasis of the Seas in Labadee.  Looks like another day in paradise!

If you wanted more Oasis-class photos, then wish granted! Earl McGrath sent us this photo from Allure of the Seas and it is a rare daytime photo of an empty AquaTheater, rock climbing wall and Boardwalk.

I love this photo of sisters Serenade of the Seas and Brilliance of the Seas, taken by Frederic in Tallinn, Estonia.

Here are two more sister ships. This time it is Explorer of the Seas and Voyager of the Seas as they pass Fort Denison in Sydney Harbor, by Andrew Logan.

Blake Baldwin sent us this photo of what he calls, "the simple life in Jamaica". Not sure which cruise this is from, but it is a great photo!

Our last photo this week is from Adrian Chan, and it is of the helipad on Independence of the Seas.  Looks like a picture-perfect day to be enjoying the view from there.
