Friday is here and that means we're sharing our reader's favorite Royal Caribbean cruise photos to give the rest of us a little "cruise fix" until our next cruise.  Let's see what we have this week.

Jared sent us this photo from St. Maarten with a number of cruise ships in port, including Independence of the Seas, which is on the right. I love to compare ships when in port and this is a great view!

John McCormack sent us this photo of the cast of the Ice Games show on Allure of the Seas. Love the shows in the evening!

How about a black and white photo of Oasis of the Seas by Connor De La Pena? A black and white photo here and there is always a nice change.

How about another photo of Independence of the Seas? Here's one from Jeremy from the pool deck and boy, do I wish I was looking at this right now!

Frank Battiston sent in this great sunset photo from Allure of the Seas.  It was taken on his Aqua Theater Suite deck and it looks amazing!

Last, but not least, we have this photo by John Siegmund of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge sailing into Cape Liberty on morning of departure on Explorer of the Seas. Great view!

Thank you to everyone who sent in photos and don't forget that we want to see your photos too.  Use our form to send us your favorite Royal Caribbean photos and we will share them in an upcoming Friday Photos post!

We've reached the weekend and this best weekends begin with a collection of Royal Caribbean photos our readers sent in.  We have a great batch to share this week, so let's get it started.

Ken Slusser sent us this photo of Independence of the Seas and Allure of the Seas docked alongside each other in Falmouth, Jamaica.  I'm always amazed when the Oasis class ships can make the Freedom class ships look small.

Next we have a photo from Giulio Saggin of people crammed into the elevator on Voyager of the Seas back in 2012.  Giulo also blogged about his experience here.

I love this photo of Voyager of the Seas' pool deck at night by Alison.  Night swims are the best swims!

Next is a photo by Murray of Radiance of the Seas while anchored at Airlie Beach in Queensland, Australia.  Crikey!

Speaking of anchored Royal Caribbean ships, here's Explorer of the Seas docked in San Juan by Julia Wadsworth.  Love the old schooner in the foreground!

If you prefer photos of Royal Caribbean ships on the move, try this one by Dan Kohout of Liberty of the Seas entering the channel at Port Everglades on February 24th 2014.  I love the colors in this photo and the great contrast.

Thank you to everyone who sent us photos this week and if you haven't sent us your Royal Caribbean photo yet, please use this form to send them in so it can be featured here!

Happy Friday everyone! We have another great assortment of Royal Caribbean photos our readers have sent in to us to share with all of you.  This is always so much fun to do so thank you to everyone who makes this weekly post possible!

Our first photo is from Ken Sussler in Labdee while on his Independence of the Seas sailing in March.  I think Ken has inspired me for a photo opportunity on the Royal Caribbean Blog group cruise!

Connor De La Pena sent in this photo and he didn't indicate what ship this is from but since all of his other photos he has sent in were from Oasis of the Seas, I'll guess it's also from Oasis of the Seas.

I am a sucker for sunset photos and lens flares photos so this Liberty of the Seas photo from Laura Metzler is my favorite photo ever. 

Eilika Trummar sent in this photo of the suite balconies on Allure of the Seas and I think it's a great example of composition and with the sunset in the background, you know it has my approval.

John McCormack sent in this photo of Legend of the Seas and two other ships vie for berthing space in St. Kitts. February, 2014.

Hunt sent in this photo of himself, his sister and her husband and Hunt's  dear friend Jeffrey, Arrrrrg!

We want to include your Royal Caribbean photos too! Send them in with this form and we will include it in an upcoming Friday Photos post!

When it's Friday, we share our readers' Royal Caribbean cruise photos that were sent in to give everyone reading this post a quick "mental escape" to a Royal Caribbean cruise vacation.  If you have photos you would like to include, be sure to send them in too!

This week's first photo is from Connor De La Pena of Oasis of the Seas' Royal Promenade.  I really think the Oasis-class Royal Promenade is underrated because it gets overshadowed by the other amazing neighborhoods on the ship.

Laura Metzler sent us this photo from Royal Caribbean's private island of Labadee.  She writes, "Exploring Labadee with my talented boyfriend Tim Murphy who captured some amazing shots of the private island's history and natural beauty."

I love this photo of Legend of the Seas docked in Roseau, Dominica by John McCormack.  Stunning photo and I love the colors.

Here is a photo of sunset over Baltimore from the Enchantment of the Seas back in November 2012 by Carol A Cheney.  I never get sick of sunset photos!

You know what else I don't get sick of? Labadee photos! Jill Snyder sent us this photo of Oasis of the Seas docked in Labadee just a few weeks ago in March 2014.

Jill added right after taking this photo she relaxed at a cabana all day long at Nellie's Beach.  Jill, I've never been so jealous!

More Labadee photos, you say?  Here's another photo of Labadee with Explorer of the Seas peeking back in 2012 by Steven Brinkman.  I really think it's impossible to take a bad photo of Labadee.

I don't usually do this but I wanted to include my own photo this week, with me posing with Royal Caribbean CEO Adam Goldstein.  It was such an honor to meet him and talk about Royal Caribbean together.  

I feel like this was another great week of Royal Caribbean photos and I want you to send us your photos too! Use this form to send us your best Royal Caribbean photos and we will include them in an upcoming blog post!

Friday is here and before you start your weekend, let's take a look at some fun Royal Caribbean photos that our readers sent in to be showcased.  Just like you, we love looking at Royal Caribbean photos to get a "quick fix" when it comes to the "I'm not on a cruise" blues.

The first photo this week is from Tom & Diane Trudnowski of sunset while on their Serenade of the Seas cruise out of New Orleans.  Amazing colors!

Kayla sent us this photo of her enjoying the drink of the day in the Pig n Whistle pub on Voyager of the Seas. I think I speak for everyone reading this Kayla when I say I could really, really use the drink of the day right now.

Laura Metzler decided to have her own "Titanic moment" while on Liberty of the Seas when she (and her husband?) decided to re-create this classic Titanic pose. The picturesque sunset in the background was an added bonus.

Jorge C Toache Alcázar sent this photo of what the crew of Allure of the Seas sent him for Valentine's Day.  It looks like the crew choo-choo-choose you to be their valentine!

I love this photo by Steven Brinkman from his Explorer of the Seas cruise.  He wrote, "I made some really close friends on my cruise on the Explorer back in 2012, and we loved hanging out in Cloud Nine because it was always so quiet and relaxed."

We will wrap things up this week with a photo by Brent of CocoCay while on his Majesty of the Seas cruise.  I know earlier I wanted the drink of the day but I'd be willing to trade that for spending the day here instead!

Do you have fun Royal Caribbean photos to share?  Send us your favorite photos and we will feature them on an upcoming blog post!

Once more it is Friday and once more we are sharing lots of fun Royal Caribbean photos our readers have sent in to us.  Let's get started!

Our first photo this week comes from John Siegmund and it's of tour ships sailing the sunset in Key West, Florida back on February 20, 2014. Great shot!

I really love this photo from Lauren McCrillis of bon voyage cupcakes that she made before going on Liberty of the Seas.  Great idea and further proof funfetti makes everything better.

This beautiful photo of Voyager of the Seas' sports deck while on a 14-night cruise around New Zealand looks amazing.  The colors are so vivid and sunsets at sea are the best.

Alejandro sent us this photo of his souvenir scale models that he bought on his cruises.  In this picture there is Allure of the Seas, Freedom of the Seas, Liberty of the Seas, Serenade of the Seas & Brilliance of the Seas.

Kayla's photo of Jackson Square in New Orleans and she writes, "Jackson Square in New Orleans, where we got on the Voyager of the Seas for her Western Caribbean Itinerary. Fell in love with that city and cant wait to go back!"

The photo that wins the "Matt wishes he was most at right now" award goes to this photo of CocoCay by Michael Poole.  Looks perfect!

This week's photos were great but we want more of your Royal Caribbean photos, so please use this form to send us your favorite Royal Caribbean photos so we can share them on the blog!

Happy Friday to everyone and because it's almost the weekend, that means it is time to share with all of you some great Royal Caribbean photos our readers sent to us.

Our first photo is from Stefan, who took this photo on Liberty of the Seas back on February 21, 2014 as they were very close to Cuba and the bird decided to rest on the railing.  Amazing colors!

Here's a photo by Regina Lee simply titled "enjoying the casino".  

Here's a photo by Ryan Feuerstein of Legend of the Seas docked in Antigua back on February 21, 2014.  That's a big ship!

François St-Onge sent in this photo of his view from his "hump" balcony on Explorer of the Seas.  It's a great room!

Our next photo is from John McCormack and it's of a 17th century canon taking aim at the cruise port in St. Maarten. John says, "If you want to avoid the tourist crush in Philisburg, take a bike tour to see some of the history of the island."

It just wouldn't be a Friday Photos blog post without a photo from Kayla, who sent in this one of her last night of her Alaskan cruise on Rhapsody of the Seas.  The photo is of Myra, her assistant waiter in the main dining room.  

Kalya writes, "She told us about her culture, all the places she has visited and about her life on board for months at a time. These crew members aren't just had working individuals, they are also relatable and caring. We exchanged emails and Myra and I are still in touch to this day! WE LOVE YOU MYRA! :)"

Thank you to everyone who sent in these great photos!  If you have a Royal Caribbean vaction photo to share, send yours in too and we may feature it right here on the blog!

It's Friday and that means it is time to share with all of you the great Royal Caribbean photos our readers have sent us to showcase.  Each week we ask our readers to send us their favorite Royal Caribbean cruise photos to share with everyone, so let's see what we have this week.

Our first photo comes from Kayla and it's from her balcony on Radiance of the Seas.  Gotta love days that involve a view like this!

Nancy Geiger sent this photo of a group of friends that went on Navigator of the Seas last spring out of Rome.  Her opinion? "Best. Trip. Ever."

This photo is from Michael Poole from Navigator of the Seas in March 2013 and he writes, "If you ever get a chance to sail on a voyager class ship you can access the helicopter pad from deck 4.  

Funny story about this picture…  Once you get up to the helipad at night its pitch dark and you cannot see a thing.  I took a picture with my flash on and headed back to the room.  Once I finally looked at my picture, you can see I was not up there alone!  I had no idea anyone was up there with me."

Here's a photo of Allure of the Seas while in the Bahamas back in 2011 sent to us by Bill Brown.  Quite a collection of ships!

Gerard Lefebvre sent us this photo from San Juan of the bridge of his ship. Great shot!

Lastly, here's a photo by Steven B. that he took in 2012 on Explorer of the Seas somewhere in the Eastern Caribbean. Love it!

Thank you to everyone who sent photos in this week.  Be sure to send us your Royal Caribbean photos too so we can include them in upcoming Friday Photos posts.

We love sharing Royal Caribbean photos with all of our readers and so each week we ask our readers to send us their favorite Royal Caribbean cruise photos to be featured right here on the blog!

Our first photo comes from Kayla (who loves to send us photos of her husband) from her Radiance of the Seas cruise, which was her first cruise and she credits that cruise for making her an avid cruising fan.

Speaking of husbands at a balcony, Kathy Geiger sent us this photo of her husband, John Geiger, on the balcony of his cabin on the Navigator of the Sewas last spring while docking in Turkey.

Michael Poole sent in this photo of Freedom of the Seas while they sailed away from Falmouth, Jamaica in March 2013. Ya mon!

Paulette and Lee Herron sent us this photo of yoga on the beach at Cococay.  They mentioned, "Wonderful excursion from Freedom of the Seas!"  I'd contort myself into a pretzel right now if that meant I could be on CocoCay too!

Next we have a photo from Woodrow Herron with the Captain of Freedom of the Seas. They write, "First time we felt really, really little. He gave us a great cruise!"

Lastly, we have this photo from Connor De La Pena, who included no description so I'm guessing this is on a Royal Caribbean cruise taken before today.  You don't get to write blogs without being this smart!

Is your Royal Caribbean photo not here? Well, send us your favorite Royal Caribbean photos and we will include them in a future Friday Photos post!

If it's Friday, that means it is time to share some more awesome photos our readers have sent in of their Royal Caribbean cruise vacations!  As always, we want your photos too, so send us your best Royal Caribbean photos so we can share it with the world.

Our first photo this week is from Neil Davies and it's of Liberty of the Seas and Vision of the Seas in St. Maarten.  Quite a difference in size!

Next is this photo from Glenn Wildenmann taken aboard Independence of the Seas in December 2012.  The ship you're seeing is actually a Celebrity ship.  Glenn notes that him, his wife and four daughters are scheduled to sail December 2014 on Allure of the Seas.  Have a great time Glenn!

This photo is from johnpaulla and he writes, "10,000 lbs…that's what the weight on the ground said…not of my wife after a week of feasting on the Mariner of the Seas over the New Year cruise, but of the helicopter allowed on the pad."

Ken sent us this photo of his "shrine for his passion". The 3 pictures on the wall are of the Mariner of the sea from right to left Anchored in Cabo San Lucas docked in Cozumel and docked in Puerto Vallarta.  Great idea Ken!

Here's a photo of the Royal Promenade on Liberty of the Seas, sent to us by Capt. John.  Looks like there's a table waiting for me at the pub!

Our last photo is from Kayla when she was watching the famous cliff divers in Acapulco, Mexico.  Beautiful (and scary)!

Thank you to everyone who sent in their photos this week. Have a great weekend and be sure to send us your photos so we can post them next week by using this form.
