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!

This week's first photo comes to us from Michael Poole and it's from Oasis of the Seas in Central Park.  Michael wrote, "I wish I was having dinner in Central Park now".  Me too!

I love the vantage point of this photo from Marc and Lisa Sandhaus from their Legend of the Seas cruise to Labadee.  Beautiful!

Next is a photo from Mary from Radiance of the Seas. Mary writes, "Looking up while relaxing outside the lobby bar aboard the Radiance of the Seas. Great Alaskan cruise!"

The wonderful support group Autism on the Seas sent us this photo from their Group Cruise onboard Grandeur of the Seas.  It was taken during a group excursion at Snorkel Park Beach in Bermuda and it looks like everyone was having a great time!

Last but not least is this photo again taken in Labadee (my favorite!) by Ken Slusser.  It was taken while Ken was on Independence of the Seas and I would love to take a swim there right now!

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 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!

Our first photo this week is from John Siegmund and it's of the entrance to the Viking Crown Lounge on Vision of the Seas. A great place to spend some time and enjoy the view!

Next is a photo of the "secret balcony" on Oasis of the Seas by Michael Poole.  Not a bad view at all!

Mike Cook sent us this photo of the Royal Promenade during a late departure on Independence of the Seas.  Mike had the the ship to himself!

François St-Onge sent us this photo from Liberty of the Seas in Port of Livorno, Italy as a Pullmantur ship departs.  Amazing colors!

Here we have the Texas Tenors performing on Navigator of the Seas during its June 8th sailing that Stewart Thompson was on.  That's some mighty fine singing, partner.

Lastly, Les Lockyer sent us this photo of the Solarium on Voyager of the Seas during an Australia cruise to New Zealand.  I love the pools at night!

That will wrap things up for this week's batch of photos but we want your Royal Caribbean photos too!  Use this form to send us your Royal Caribbean photos and we will feature them in an upcoming edition of this blog series!

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!

First up is a photo of the sunset in St. Thomas by Kyle from DC.  Gorgeous!

Ken Slusser sent us this photo of the officers on Independence of the Seas playing pool volleyball against the passengers.  I've never seen this happen but I wish it would happen more often!

Next is a photo from May of Radiance of the Seas taken from a whale watching excursion boat in Icy Strait Point, Alaska.  Alaska always produces such great photos.

Woodrow Herron sent in this photo of their "Make a Wish" auction for Chef's Table lunch that was personally served by Executive Chef Lorenzo Dearie.  What an experience!  

Here's a photo by Donal Kavanagh from Adventure of the Seas.  Donal writes, "I just really liked the reflections in the windows of the Viking Crown lounge when looking up from the main pool deck.".  I'm pretty sure everything looks great when you're on the pool deck on a Royal Caribbean cruise.

Mike Cook sent us this photo of Independence of the Seas deep into the heart of the fjords at Skjolden around midnight.  I like the shadows created by the fjords against the sky.

Liberty of the Seas while passing by Nice, France.  François St-Onge sent in this photo and it's a cool sight when a cruise ship like this is passing by like this!

 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!

The weekend is almost here and that means it is once again time to show off our readers' Royal Caribbean cruise photos because, well, we think these photos are a great way to take a quick "virtual trip" back onboard.  Here we go!

I like this photo that Kyle from DC sent us because he titled it, "Now this is the life" and it was taken in St Maarten.  Couldn't agree more!

Next is a photo from Ken Slusser of his Behind the Scenes tour on Allure of the Seas, where he got to see 4000 lobster tails being prepared for dinner. Yum!

Michael Poole sent us this photo of Enchantment of the Seas that he took while on CocoCay.  Not a bad view!

I really like this photo by Richard Todd of Oasis of the Seas tied up next to the Carnival Glory while docked in Nassau.  Great perspective!

Here's a photo of the Royal Promenade on Navigator of the Seas by Jack.  I really love how it looks post-refurbishment!

Great photo of two Royal Caribbean ships docked together in Cozumel by Mary. One is Jewel of the Seas but nbot sure whuch is the other ship behind her.

Our last photo is from Woodrow Herron and he writes, "Wow, just got back from the Allure where we won the "Make a Wish" auction for the Chef's Table for lunch. Had an exceptional lunch served by Executive Chef Lorenzo Dearie paired with wonderful hand selected wines served by Sommelier Rudi Duvenage! Going back and doing it again!"

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!

Happy Friday! We've got a slew of great Royal Caribbean photos that our readers have sent in and each Friday we showcase them right here for all of you. Enjoy!

I can never have enough sunsets, so we will start off with this photo of a sunset in the Caribbean from Kyle.  Love it!

Ken Slusser sent us this photo of Enchantment of the Seas' pool deck from his June 2012 cruise.  Ken mentions they had great weather and really enjoyed the ship!

Here's a photo of Rhapsody of the Seas as she departs Circular Quay, Sydney, Australia by Wes Brown.  Wes took the photo from the Opera Bar, Sydney Opera House.

Mary sent us this photo from Maho Beach in St Marten of an airplane landing.  I loved visiting this little tourist trap because, well, it's just so cool to see the planes land like this.

Next is a photo from John Siegmund of aerial performers from Renaissance Aerial Spectacular on Vision of the Seas.  Awesome show!

Michael Poole sent us this photo of what he does when he firsts boards any Royal Caribbean ship.  He finds these little maps to find his away around. This is from his Oasis of the Seas cruises in 2013.

Did I mention I like sunset photos? Here's another one from Don Harlan from his Serenade of the Seas cruise.  This one was from the Mediterranean so we're expanding our collection of sunset pics.

Our last photo this week comes from Mike Jones and it was taken n Flam, Norway.  While on Independence of the Seas he snapped this photo with the ship and mountains (or are they fjords?) in the background.  Spectacular!

Be sure to send us your Royal Caribbean photos so we can feature them here too!  Use this form to send us your photos and we will include them in future posts.  Have a great weekend!

Welcome to this week's edition of Friday Photos, where we share our readers' Royal Caribbean photos with all of you.  

To me, this weekly feature is an opportunity to enjoy a quick "mental escape" to a Royal Caribbean cruise vacation.  Let's get started with this week's batch!

Our first photo is from Kyle, who sent us this photo of Turtle Cove snorkeling excursion in St. Thomas. On a pirate ship! This be a fun excursion, says I!

Next is a photo from Ken Slusser from his January 2013 Allure of the Seas cruise.  It's a night shot that shows off how the Boardwalk area really lights up so incredibly when it's dark out.  Beautiful!

Alison sent us this photo of Voyager of the Seas in Sydney, Australia earlier this year.  Sydney harbor is such a beautiful backdrop for these Royal Caribbean cruises.

How about another Sydney photo this week? Wes Brown sent in this photo of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Opera House, and Fort Dennison as seen from stern of Radiance of the Seas as she departs Sydney.  Great shot Wes!

Here's a photo of my new found favorite Royal Caribbean ship, Navigator of the Seas, while she was docked in Roatan, Honduras in May.  Jennifer Bever took this photo on her Maya Key shore excursion.  What I wouldn't give to be there right now!

Next up is a photo from Matt Carrera of his son Colton watching the sea roll by on their Jewel of the Seas cruise.  I don't care how old you are, watching the ocean pass by never gets old.

I love this photo of Oasis of the Seas docked in St. Thomas that Mary sent in.  Sweeping photos like this really put in perspective how beautiful the island is and how big Oasis of the Seas is!

Last, but not least, Michael Poole sent in this photo of the R Bar on Brilliance of the Seas.  Michael noted he wishes he was having a drink right now there, and I couldn't agree more.

That wraps up this week's post but we want your Royal Caribbean cruise photos too!  Send them to us by using this form and we will be sure to include it an upcoming post!

Another Friday is here and that means we are sharing our readers great Royal Caribbean cruise photos with all of you. Each and every week, we showcase the Royal Caribbean photos our readers send to us.  Let's jump into this week's batch!

First up this week is a photo by Ken Slusser of his banner "Carolina Cruise-saders" that he hung on deck 9 balcony bump on Independence of the Seas while on his March 2014 cruise.  Love the creativity!

Next is a photo by Nick of sunrise on their way to Bermuda on Explorer of the Seas. I haven't found a sunrise photo I didn't like!

Here we have a photo from Dirk of the Serenade of the Seas in the port of Cartagena, Spain from May 2014.  Bueno!

Kyle from D.C. sent this photo of "Lady O" in St. Thomas.  I really like the colors in this shot.

Here we have the Dreamworks parade as seen from Alison's Royal Promenade stateroom on Voyager of the Seas.

The Cruise Buddies, from Pennsylvania, British Columbia and Louisiana line up for their Crown and Anchor cruise point photo on the Brilliance of the Seas transatlantic crossing to Harwich. Cruising with a group is always fun and this looks like a great group!

That wraps things up for this week's batch of photos but be sure to send us your Royal Caribbean photos and we will feature them in an upcoming post!

Happy Memorial Day weekend!  We're starting this weekend with our readers' favorite Royal Caribbean cruise photos.  Each week we invite our readers to share their photos with us!

Our first photo this week is from Ken Slusser and it's of the new cabanas recently added to Adrenaline Beach in Labadee.  I can tell you from first hand experience that napping on a beach couch is the way to experience Labadee!

Krystal Sullivan sent in this photo of Horseshoe Bay in Bermuda, from her Explorer of the Seas cruise. Her husband took this panoramic photo of the ocean and the color looks gorgeous!

Here's another photo from an Explorer of the Seas cruise to Bermuda.  Kelly Tarman sent in this photo from Southampton Parish, which is the Queen's View.  Kelly says this view, "was made famous by Queen Elizabeth II in 1953 when she visited Bermuda following her coronation. If you look in the distance you can see Explorer of the Seas in all her glory."

Next is a photo from Dirk of his view from Serenade of the Seas in St. Maarten when Allure of the Seas gave him a huge good-bye.  Note the crew members under the Allure name with the prop!

SK Goh sent us this photo of the view of Port Klang as seen from Mariner of the Seas' Windjammer back in January.  Hard to beat breakfast with a view like that.

Lastly, we have this photo from Steven Brinkman from his Navigator of the Seas cruise last month. Wish I was back on her right now.

We want your Royal Caribbean photos too! Use this form to send us your favorite photos and we will include it in an upcoming blog post.

When the calendar says Friday that means it's time to share Royal Caribbean photos our readers have sent in to us to share.  Each week we invite everyone reading our blog to send us their favorite Royal Caribbean photos.  Let's see what we have this week!

First up is this photo of Ken and Noelle Slusser while they were in the Windjammer on Independence of the Seas during their March 14 cruise.  Great background of the ocean!

Next is a photo by Nick from his cruise to Bermuda taken underground in the Crystal Caves.  I had no idea Bermuda had caves like this!

Here's a photo by Hunter Raines during sailaway in Port Everglades while on Liberty of the Seas.  I love sailway because that is exactly when your cruise really begins.

Jeremy sent us this photo of the Strings ice show on Independence of the Seas.  The ice shows are always an impressive display.

I really like this photo of Jewel of the Seas anchored in Bar Harbor, Maine back in 2012 by Kenneth R. Scott.  I'd love to do a New England cruise someday and this photo reinforces that notion.

Lastly, we have this photo by Jeremy of the "Come Fly With Me" show on Oasis of the Seas from April 2013.  Jeremy wrote it was an "awesome show" and I couldn't agree more!

I think we have yet another great set of photos this week and I invite you to send us your favorite Royal Caribbean photos by using this form.  Have a great weekend!

Let's start the weekend off with some great Royal Caribbean photos by our readers.  Each week we ask our readers to send us their photos and here's just a few that we have to show off this week.

Hunter Raines sent us this week's first photo from Margaritaville in Falmouth, with Liberty of the Seas in the background.  Now that is what I call a view!

Next is a photo from Nick in the Viking Crown lounge on Explorer of the Seas.  I love spending time here and enjoying a drink or two.  You cannot beat the view!

Next is a photo of sunset while on Liberty of the Seas in Cozumel by John Siegmund.  Great shot John!

Jeremy sent us this photo of Strings ice show on Independence of the Seas.  I love the ice shows Royal Caribbean puts on because it's always an impressive display.

Let's go to this photo next by Steven Brinkman of the Royal Promenade on Navigator of the Seas.  Steven said he took this photo during a port day because he wanted photo without lots of guests in the background.  Mission accomplished!

Last, but no least, is this photo by Ken Slusser of his selfie with Jeff Eaton, cruise director on Independence of the Seas during his March 2014 cruise.  Love how "into it" these cruise directors get!

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!
