Usually, cruisers don’t get to see much when they’re 500 miles out to sea. So we’re overjoyed that Cruise Critic member Cannedpears was on the case when an owl (yeah, an owl!) started swooping around Voyager of the Seas in broad daylight. Our resourceful member filmed the overly ambitious raptor from his perch at Johnny Rockets in the middle of the Western Caribbean last December, then shared it recently on the message boards. We guess it may be a short-eared owl, which sometimes hunts in daylight hours and favors estuaries and other wide-open areas as hunting ground. Either that or someone had some mail delivered — at least it wasn’t a howler.
