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.

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!
