It's Friday and naturally we are sharing fun Royal Caribbean photos that our readers sent in.  In fact, every week we ask our readers to send us their best Royal Caribbean photos to share with everyone!

Our first photo this week comes from Don Donahue, who took this photo of a Cruise Critic cabin crawl while on Brilliance of the Seas. A cabin crawl is when everyone in the group allows others in the group to come see their cabins so people can get a sense of the differences.  

Next we have a photo from Kayla of her husband on Radiance of the Seas enjoying a beer while playing mini golf.  If this isn't relaxing then I don't know what is.

Here's a photo from Phil Catarella of Radiance of the Seas anchored in Moorea, French Polynesia.  I'd love to take a Royal Caribbean cruise like this to be able to visit the south Pacific!

How about a perfect pool day on Adventure of the Seas?  Neil Davies sent us this photo from his trans-Atlantic cruise and it looks lovely!

Chris Davis sent us this photo of Explorer of the Seas, as seen from the top of the Empire State Building in January 2014.  Great view (and zoom lens)!

Lastly we have Enchantment of the Seas coming into port at 6:30 the morning of January 10th. Kelly Tarman sent us this photo and she writes, "It was our kids first cruise and they were very excited to board her just a few short hours later, so we drove to the pier to capture her arrival into Port Canaveral."  Love that excitement Kelly!

If it's Friday, then that means it's time to share some great Royal Caribbean photos that our readers sent in.  Each week we invite our readers to send us their best Royal Caribbean photos and we will post them here for all to enjoy.

Our first photo this week comes from Kayla and was taken at the Tulum Mayan Ruins in April 2012 on Voyager of the Seas.  I think I speak for all of our readers Kayla when I say we all wish we could be somewhere with that view and ocean color right now!

This photo is from Bryce Griffler and I'm sure it was a proud moment for him when he got his Platinum Crown and Anchor Society pin while on Majesty of the Seas.  Congratulations Bryce and enjoy that balcony discount!

Corry sent us this photo of him and his boys in Amalfi, Italy while on the Seranade of the Seas for 12 days. Corry says it was a "trip of a lifetime."

Michael Ryan sent is this photo of his granddaughter from her fist cruise on Allure of the Seas while walking on the pier in St Martin.  What a cutie!

Lastly, we have this photo from Don Donahue from his Brilliance of the Seas cruise traveling down the gulf from the port of Tampa.  Beautiful!

Thank you to everyone who sent us a photo to use this week.  We want your Royal Caribbean photos too, so please send us a favorite Royal Caribbean cruise photo to share by using this form.

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.

Let's get right into this week's batch of photos!

Our first photo this week is from Corry E, who sent us this photo from his Oasis of the Seas cruise to St. Maarten.  I have to say that St. Maarten is one of my favorite islands and it looks like Corry and Mrs. Corry had a great time there!

Next is a photo from Kayla, who writes, "This was at a beach break excursion in Falmouth, Jamaica when we were on Voyager of the Seas. The beach and the authentic jerk chicken lunch was amazing!"

I love having authentic food when I'm visiting a port and it's hard to beat good food and a beautiful beach.  Ya mon!

This photo is from Bryce Griffler, taken during his Majesty of the Seas cruise while snorkeling at CocoCay.  Bryce has mastered the art of fitting in with the fish.

Harry Yerikyan sent us this photo from the Royal Promenade on Allure of the Seas.  I've always enjoyed seeing a different classic car on the Royal Promenade on each ship.  Thanks Harry!

Our last photo comes from Tom & Diane Trudnowski of Freedom of the Seas tied up.  Today sure sounds perfect for a port day!

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.

If you're ready for a mental escape to a Royal Caribbean cruise, then you're at the right place because we have some great Royal Caribbean photos our readers have sent in.  Each week we ask our readers to send us their best Royal Caribbean photos to showcase right here on the blog so be sure to send yours in too!

Let's see the photos we have for this week.

First up is a photo from Kayla, taken in Skagway, Alaska as part of her Rhapsody fo the Seas cruise. Kayla wrote, "I have never seen such beautiful scenery!"  I have to agree, this looks like an amazing view.

If I gave out prizes for these photos (and I don't), this photo by Gary Garcia would win because it's a fantastic photo of Liberty of the Seas in Cozumel, Mexico with a full rainbow behind her.  Wow!

Salem Sue sent us this next photo of the al fresco dining area of Chops on Oasis of the Seas, overlooking Central Park and the Rising Tide Bar.  Central Park is such an amazing feat and I never get tired of admiring how pretty it looks.

Next we have a photo by Jane Gabrielle and it's of guest and crew with zombie face paint on for a "Thriller" dance lesson.  Jane notes she was the onboard face painter and so was responsible for painting the cast.  You can now all imagine me doing the Thriller dance as I post this photo.

Our next photo is of one of my favorite places to visit.  Stephanie Fike sent in this photo of El Morro in San Juan, Puerto Rico, taken on the way out of the channel on Explorer of the Seas.

Johnpaulla sent us this photo from Mariner of the Seas for the New Year's balloon drop.  He notes there were hundreds of balloons slung up for the 2014 New Year count-down along the Royal Promenade onboard the Mariner of the Seas.

It's pretty cold out there in many places but we've got some Royal Caribbean photos our readers have sent in to warm you up.  In fact, each week we ask our readers to send us their best Royal Caribbean photos to showcase right here on the blog so be sure to send yours in too!

Let's see what we have this week.

Here we have Explorer of the Seas in Quebec City Port by François St-Onge.  Someday I hope to take a cruise up to Quebec because it looks lovely.

Connor De La Pena sent this photo from Oasis of the Seas' Boardwalk.  Just another beautiful day at sea, eh?  

This photo is from Kayla and she writes, "This is one of my favorite photos from our Alaska cruise, August 2013 aboard the Rhapsody of the Seas! This was taken at the Mendenhall Glacier in Juneau Alaska. We saw everything from bears, to bald eagles, to whales! Such an amazing cruise full of adventure!"  Can't beat that view!

Harry A. Yerikyan sent us this photo from Allure of the Seas at the Aqua Theater show with the Royal Caribbean logo too. The performance here never disappoints!

Here's Freedom of the Seas docked in what looks to me like Cozumel, but I could be wrong.  What I do know is it looks like another beautiful day and significantly warmer than where I am now so it's enough to make me jealous.  Thanks to Tom & Diane Trudnowski for sending in this photo.

It's the last Friday Photos of 2013 and we have some great shots that our readers have sent in to share with everyone!  We've loved sharing these photos every week with all of you, so thank you to everyone that made this such a fun year.

Let's jump into this week's batch.

Matt Carrera sent in this photo and he writes, "Always loved this shot that I took in St. John (after taking the ferry over from St. Thomas) while cruising last year on the Allure of the Seas."  Love the perspective and suddenly I'm very thirsty.

This panoramic photo was taken by François St-Onge and it's of Liberty of the Seas while in Toulon, France. Who knew the south of France was so beautiful?  Excellent photo!

Our next photo is by Connor De La Pena and it's from an excursion at Labadee.  I think this photo speaks to what we all hope for on a beach day: sun, warm weather and not a worry in the world.

Here is Brilliance of the Seas anchored in Bar Harbor, Maine back in  October 2013 by "Mid".  Notice the brand new cruise ship next to the sailing ship? Love the contrast.

This photo by Lisa Sullivan is of Serenade of The Seas while in Santorini Greece from August 2013.  If I didn't know any better, I'd have guessed this was a marketing brochure photo.  One of the best photos we've seen all year Lisa!

Our last photo comes to us from Serguei & Jacqueline while they were on Explorer of the Seas in October 2012 during Hurricane Sandy.  They write, "'Always prepared'. Thanks to the crew and the Captain of the ship for our safety and unforgettable memories. Royal Caribbean did everything possible to make that cruise the best it could be."

Thank you to everyone that sent in their photos this week and if you have Royal Caribbean photos, be sure to send yours in as well so we can post them here next week!

Happy New Year to all our Friday Photos faithful and I'm looking forward to seeing your 2014 Royal Caribbean photos start to come in soon!

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 Matt Carrera taken on Allure of the Seas back in October 2012.  I'd say this pirate looks ready for a high seas adventure (and maybe a hot dog for lunch).

Next is photo from Michael Poole of Central Park on Oasis of the Seas.  With his photo, Michael wrote, "Who wouldn't want to be there now."  Could not agree more!

Jan Breedlove sent in this photo of arriving at St. Maarten in October 2013 while on Freedom of the Seas.  St. Maarten is such a beautiful island and Jan's photo really captures the serenity of the harbor.

This panoramic photo by Paul Wilson was taken from the deck of the Navigator of the Seas at Cagliari this past November.  Great idea to take a panoramic photo!

Finally this week, let's go north of the border to François St-Onge, who sent us this photo of Explorer of the Seas in Quebec City Port.  Magnifique!

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!

Our first photo this week comes from friend of the blog Michael Poole, who took this picture of Liberty of the Seas while on the Oasis of the Seas a few weeks ago coming into Fort Lauderdale.

Next is a photo by johnpaulla taken on Mariner of the Seas during "World Toilet Day" (don't ask).  He wants to know, "I am sending you this photo.  I have a problem...where do I deposit my excrement in my cabin, if the toilet is for tissue ONLY?... "

Ross and Pam sent in our next photo, which is of Radiance of the Seas at Moorea.

Giulio Saggin sent in this photo of a Manly Ferry glides past Rhapsody of the Seas while she is docked at the Overseas Passenger Terminal at Circular Quay in Sydney, November 19, 2013.

The last photo comes from Mike and Ruth of the lighthouse pulling into Nawiliwili,Kauai on Rhaapsody of the Seas.  They describe it as, "It still exciting after doing that cruise 4 years in a row. Already booked for next year!"

Happy Friday! And because it is Friday, we're going to share some great Royal Caribbean cruise photos that our readers have sent in. We want your photos too, so send us your best Royal Caribbean photos to share with the world.

Our first photo this week comes to us from Connor and it's of a life preserver from Oasis of the Seas.  Oh and there's a pretty sunset in there too.  

Mike Klugo sent in this photo of Allure of the Seas in Cozumel. He writes, "After waiting over 4 years to go on my dream ship, I was finally able to spend a week on this amazing behemoth! This was taken by me in Cozumel, Mexico near Señor Frogs."  I think Allure of the Seas was worth the wait Mike!

Next photo is from Eddy Ong, who took this artsy photo of Freedom of the Seas on October 2013.  I never get tired of looking up at these magnificent cruise ships when you're standing next to them.

Harry A. Yerikyan has our next photo from Oasis of the Seas (seems to be an Oasis-class filled blog post this week) looking to the Aqua Theater from the Boardwalk.  Looks great to me!

Thank you to everyone that sent in their photos this week and if you have Royal Caribbean photos, well, we want to see them!  You can use this form to send us your photos and we will feature them on an upcoming Friday Photos blog post!

We love to share your Royal Caribbean photos every Friday and give everyone a quick "mental escape" to look at some stunning photos.  We want your photos too, so send us your best Royal Caribbean photos to share with the world.

This week, we will begin with a photo from Michael Poole who has this photo from CocoCay that he took in fall 2012.  A day at CocoCay sounds like the perfect escape right about now.

David Caffey took this photo of Freedom of the Seas last week in St Thomas while he was on the Disney Fantasy.  Don't worry David, we will let this little transgression of cruising with another line pass because of this great photo.

Next up is a photo from Lisa Perillo and it's of Split Croatia while being tendered back to Splendour of the Seas from May 2013.  I'd be lying if I said I knew how to say "beautiful" in Croatian but it's a great view!

Connor sent in this photo of looking up at the elevators on Oasis of the Seas.  I never get tired of impressive views like this one.

Here's a photo from Don Harlan of the USS Arizona's oil leak while on his Pearl Harbor Tour excursion from Rhapsody of the Seas.  Don described this photo as "72 years, eerie & somber".  I completely agree.

Lastly, we have this photo from Marnette Severance of Enchantment of the Seas in December 2012, after their third and last cruise on her before she left Baltimore.  

Thank you to everyone that sent in their photos this week and if you have Royal Caribbean photos, well, we want to see them!  You can use this form to send us your photos and we will feature them on an upcoming Friday Photos blog post!
