Cruise ships are canceling their stops in Puerto Rico as unrest unfolds

Puerto Rico governor vows to remain in office after violent protests

Thousands of people marched to the governor's residence in Puerto Rico's capital of San Juan on Wednesday to demand the resignation of Governor Ricardo Rossello.

Two top officials in Rossello's administration, who had participated in the governor's group chat, resigned on Saturday following the release by Puerto Rico journalist group Centro de Periodismo Investigativo of 889 pages of text messages.

Protesters waved Puerto Rico's flag printed in black and gray rather than red, white and blue, as a symbol of their discontent with a government they call corrupt and unresponsive to its people. Outside the capitol building in Old San Juan, large and raucous protests continued.

"I recognize the enormous challenge I have before me due to the recent controversies, but I firmly believe that we can restore trust and, after this painful and shameful process, achieve reconciliation", he said in a statement.

Instead, the Oasis-class vessel will sail towards her next scheduled call at St. Maarten with an arrival tomorrow morning, July 18.

"Concern for the safety and well-being of our guests and crew members is our top priority", said Owen Torres, the company's spokesperson.

He says a message threatening Gov. Ricardo Rosselló was found on a wall of the storage room.

Rosselló has faced mounting criticism over his government's response to Hurricane Maria in 2017. He added he is in the process of replacing Christian Sobrino, the island's chief financial officer and Rossello's representative on Puerto Rico's federally created financial oversight board, and Secretary of State Luis Rivera Martin, the government's second in command.

"My commitment is to keep on working and to make sure that services and the transformations that we've embarked in Puerto Rico continue", the governor told a news conference.
