I've been very lucky, this happened on my first cruise on the Splendour.
We're in a outside cabin on desk 2, sailing into the Strait of Gibraltar, I opened the curtains and swimming past the window was a lone dolphin. One of those double take moments. Later in the cruise, a transatlantic one, I looked down from the Spa and watched a sea turtle causally swim past.

Although it's a pretty sight, I wouldn't consider dolphins an unusual sight at sea. During a transatlantic crossing it's more common to spot dolphins than other ships.

But you were quite lucky to see a sea turtle

I saw 250-275 lbs woman in a bikini once on a cruise. It was very unusual. However, I had to give her props for her high level of confidence.

That is a polite way to describe it.

While on the same cruise that I saw the water spout, I took this picture of a cloud while sitting in the Viking Lounge. Maybe it was the drink, but it looked like Mickey Mouse.

I too, see Mickey in those clouds. It looks like the scene from Fantasia. Where he is wearing the red robe and playing the role of musical conductor.

I would be nice if I could sell the picture to Disney.

MikeTheKid's post reminded me of a good story...While on AOS in port, my wife had just gotten out of the shower and was totally naked. I had the curtains to the balcony wide open. We heard a funny "Bell" sound a few times, but it didn't register what it meant. A few moments later, two maitenence workers were on a scaffolding outside our window waving at us. My wife shreiked and immediately hit the floor while I almost choked on my coffee in laughter. That was several years ago and she still talks about it like it was yesterday.

Wheels87, I can totally relate, thankfully I had a t-shirt on when they came rolling past our balcony.
