I was surprised when after ordering my Privateer to attack a weakened city, he conquered it for me! I was not aware that ships can capture cities in Civ 5.

Any ship with a melee attack can capture a city; ships with ranged attacks can't. There's even an achievement for it in the Fall Of Rome scenario.
