In brief: Rarely

After looking at google search results, a couple of cases of floating cysts are found.
One is a tiny cyst (a little round thing with liquid in the center) floating in the liquid of the eyeball in front of the pupil and iris. Another is a cyst in the abdomen of a fetus (it formed from an ovary that had twisted off its normal connections). Floating cyst just means it is not connected to something.
