Every Friday we share Royal Caribbean cruise photos that our readers sent in, as a means of showcasing great photography and giving all of us a "virtual break" to enjoy the view of being on a cruise.  If you want to send in your photo, use this form and we could feature it in an upcoming post.

Our first photo is of Independence of the Seas and Grandeur of the Seas docked in Labadee.  This photo was taken by Joe L. while on his honeymoon and it is a beautiful shot!

Here is a photo of the Solarium on Allure of the Seas, by Bob Carpenter.  Bob said this is one of the most relaxing spots on the ship and I can tell you all from experience that Bob is indeed correct!

Next up is this photo of Dickensons Bay in Antigua by Pamela.  That is one really nice looking beach!

Take a look at this photo by Dan of Explorer of the Seas, as seen from the Space Needle in Seattle.  Hard to beat a view like this!

Tara Franz sent this photo of her daughter performing (she is the butterfly) in an Adventure Ocean show onboard Allure of the Seas.  So cute!

Next is a photo of Grandeur of the Seas, as seen from the beautiful sandy shores of CocoCay.  Emmanuel Mossino shared this photo and it instantly put me in the mood for a beach day.

Our last photo this week is from Richard Dreyer of Central Park on Allure of the Seas. This is my favorite neighborhood on Allure of the Seas, and a great look at how large this space really is.

Thank you to everyone that shared their photos with us this week! If you want to share with us your photos, use this form to send them in!

Every Friday, we invite our readers to send in their favorite Royal Caribbean photos so that we can showcase them right here on the blog.  We have a great selection of photos to share this week, but be sure to submit your favorite Royal Caribbean photos too!

Our first photo this week is of Radiance of the Seas by Dave Rimington from Mo'orea, French Polynesia. Look at that landscape!

Next is a photo by Steve Bovee of Oasis of the Seas next to Empress of the Seas in Cozumel.  Quite a striking contrast in ship size!

Here is Independence of the Seas docked in Southampton, by David Donnelly.  Independence is a fan-favorite in the UK and she looks radiant as ever in this photo.

This photo by Linda Stephens was a bit depressing to take, because she took it as her flight home took her right over Independence of the Seas. She had just gotten off Independence of the Seas earlier that morning. That is salt in the wound, Linda.

Bob (aka Sailor_to_Cruiser) took this photo immediately after his back to back Oasis of the Seas cruise to welcome his new grandson.  Mazel tov and it looks like the perfect gift for a newborn!

Here is a photo from Labadee by Brett Oresky of the zip liners in the background going past him.  Just another day in paradise!

Our final photo this week is by Andrew Mack of Anthem of the Seas in Nassau, Bahamas.  Beautiful ship and beautiful water color!

That wraps up this week's edition of Friday Photos. Thank you to everyone who shared photos and be sure to send in your Royal Caribbean photos so that we can share them in an upcoming edition!

Welcome to this week's edition of Friday Photos, where we showcase our readers favorite Royal Caribbean photos.  If we all cannot be on a Royal Caribbean cruise at the moment, then the next best thing is to look at photos of a cruise longingly as a means of getting a "cruise fix."

If you want to submit your photos for a future Friday Photos post, be sure to send them to us via this form.

Our first photo this week is from Julie and it is of Empress of the Seas.  A quick anecdote about Empress of the Seas, Royal Caribbean CEO Michael Bayley mentioned earlier this week that in its internal guest satisfaction surveys, Empress of the Seas scored at the top of the list recently.  It is a fun little ship!

Next, we have a photo of Dan's daughter & son-in-law ice skating on Freedom of the Seas.  Cruising is such a great multi-generational vacation experience and ice skating at sea is just plain fun for everyone!

I absolutely never get sick of sunset photos, and here is one from Vision of the Seas as taken by Krisztina Benko.  Beautiful!

Matt shared this photo of his kids, Matty and Kennedy, in Falmouth while cruising on Liberty of the Seas.  Balloon animals and a cruise on a ship with amazing water slides equals an awesome vacation!

Bill Higgins sent us this photo of the Aqua Theater sign on Royal Caribbean's Oasis of the Seas.  Check out the diver in mid-jump behind the sign!

Todd Raucci sent us this photo from CocoCay, waiting to head back their Royal Caribbean ship.  Looks like another beautiful day in CocoCay!

Our last photo this week is from the behind-the-scenes Culinary Tour on Anthem of the Seas. Lauren Ogonowski sent it in, and this is a shot of where all the bread on the ship is made fresh daily.  Pass me a savory bite!

That wraps up this week's edition of Friday Photos. If you want your Royal Caribbean photo featured here, use this form to send them in!

Happy Friday and welcome to another round of Friday Photos, where we share our readers favorite Royal Caribbean photos on the blog!  If you want to share your photos, just use this form to send them in!

Our first photo is from Kayla (KLA) Gillman of Enchantment of the Seas docked near Empress of the Seas in Nassau. Two classy Royal Caribbean ships!

Alistair Allan shared this photo of he and his family and friends with their waiter, Emily, on board Navigator of the Seas.

Next up is this photo of Oasis of the Seas in San Juan by Robin Woske. Two of my favorite things in one photo, San Juan and Oasis of the Seas!

Kathy Pepperd sent this photo of her and her husband, Dirk, in Cozumel right next to Allure of the Seas.  You get a good sense of how large a ship Allure is with a photo like this.

Gordon Marron and his brother took this photo in front of Ovation of the Seas in Cherbourg and I would be excited if I was on her maiden voyage too!

This photo of Rhapsody of the Seas by Shawn Crossley uses a photography technique known as tilt-shift, and it makes the ship look almost like a toy.  Very cool!

Here is another photo of Empress of the Seas, this time in CocoCay and taken by Krisztina Benko.  Looks like another day in paradise!

Thank you to everyone that submitted their Royal Caribbean photos! If you want to include your photos in a future Friday Photos post, be sure to send them to us!

We love sharing Royal Caribbean photos that our readers send in because they are so much fun to look at.  We want your photos too, so send us your best Royal Caribbean photos to share with the world.

Our first photo this week is by Wayne Gonzales of Jewel of the Seas docked in St. Croix USVI. Love the sunburst! 

Wendy shared a photo from her Western Caribbean evening oboard Allure of the Seas. Evenings are always so lovely when on a cruise.

Next up, is a view of Grandeur of the Seas, through Jack Pine in Bar Harbor, ME, by Julius Lacano. That is quite a vista!

Santana Little sent this photo, taken from another beautiful day on Labadee.  I think everything is better when you're on a floating mat in Labadee, right?

Cake! Jan-Arild Knutsen sent us this photo of Rhapsody of the Seas celebrating her 18th birthday in the South Pacific with Captain Gustavo cutting the cake. 

This photo is from a winter day aboard Quantum of the Seas, by Norman Sutton.  Not exactly what guests had in mind when they booked the cruise (but I bet it melted quickly).

Let's warm things back up with a shot from Jennifer's St. Thomas sailing excursion via Freedom of the Seas.  Fantastic view!

If we didn't include your photo this week, then that means you need to send it in to us for use on a future Friday Photos post.  We want to see your favorite Royal Caribbean cruise photos and you can use this form to send them to us.

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 this week is of Jewel of the Seas in St. Croix next to the Celebrity Summit by Wayne Gonzales.  Two ships with a lot of history to them.

Kristina Johnson sent us this photo of Empress of the Seas' Cruise Director and claims he is the best Cruise Director ever! Do you agree?

Kathleen Lewis sent in this photo of Freedom of the Seas, as seen from the the Labadee zip line platform. Kathleen took her daughter on this, and you cannot beat this kind of a view!

In this photo, we have Rhapsody of the Seas hiding behind the beautiful town of Fira in Santorini, Greece by Kelly Bratton. I believe it is a local law that all photos taken in Santorini have to be beautiful.

Scott Singer shared with us this photo of his son, who made friends with the servers there because he liked it so much and even learned the dance!

Dave Rimington send in this photo of Rhapsody of the Seas at Kotor, Montenegro.  Hard to beat that kind of scenery. Great photo!

Lastly, we have this photo by Wendy Hoggarth of her daughter at the port in Gibraltar, following a stop aboard Navigator of the Seas.  Love Navigator of the Seas and looks like a perfect day for a visit!

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!

Every Friday, we share our readers favorite Royal Caribbean cruise photos because, we all can use a "virtual escape" to relive some great cruising memories.

If you want your photo featured in an upcoming Friday Photos post, be sure to use this form to send it to us.

Our first photo this week is from Scott Singer, and it is of his son, Oliver, who fell in love with the Johnny Rockets menu while on a 14-night cruise. Love those burgers and shakes!

Next, we have Serenade of the Seas in Geiranger, Norway by Allen S. The natural beauty of Scandinavia is amazing.

Staying in Europe, here is a photo by Dave Rimingtonn of him enjoying Ouzo, while enjoying the view of the beautiful Rhapsody of the Seas in Santorini. Opa!

Scott Allan sent this photo of a very colorful Schooner Bar aboard Brilliance of the Seas.  Looks like another fun evening in a classic Royal Caribbean bar!

Next up, we have Legend of the Seas in Manila, Philippines, taken by Princelee Acupan.  Legend of the Seas is well-versed in cruises around that part of the world, having sailed Asian waters for many years now.

Who among us has not recreated a photo similar to this? With apologies to James Cameron, this is something we all try, including Wendy Hoggarth's husband and daughter.

Our final photo this week is from Julie Brown, and it is of the Christmas tree found on the Royal Promenade of Adventure of the Seas.  Spending the holidays on a Royal Caribbean ship is terrific!

Thank you to everyone that sent in their photos that were featured this week, and we want to see your Royal Caribbean photos too! Use this form to send them in and we will feature them in an upcoming edition of Friday Photos!

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!

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!
