*There's a funny story to this sighting! I had lost my watch that morning, and so I went back up to the cafeteria deck to look for it. As I was looking, a family eating nearby pointed at something out the window. I thought they were confusing the waves for dolphins or something, so I didn't look. But then I heard them talking about fins and, sure enough, when I looked out to where the family was pointing, I saw a group of long black fins rise out of the water... and then back down! I was so happy to see orcas, that for a moment I didn't care if I never got my watch back. The family that had pointed them out, sadly, did not know what they were looking at. They kept asking each other what they were, if they could be sharks or whatnot. After the orcas didn't show up for a third surfacing, I went down to the ship's lost-and-found.... where someone had found and turned in my missing watch!
