Harmony of the Seas skips scheduled stop in Puerto Rico due to protests
A second Royal Caribbean ship has skipped a scheduled visit to San Juan, Puerto Rico earlier today due to political demonstrations in the capital. Protests began over the weekend after the Center for Investigative Journalism published nearly 900 pages from Rosselló's private group chat via Telegram. The messages uncovered a vengeful approach to government, attacks on journalists, threats to turn over political opponents to the police as well as homophobic and misogynistic remarks.
Passenger fell from deck 16
After the "Harmony of the Seas" had berthed in Labadee on Jan 11, 2019, at noon the Alpha Code was called out after a passenger who had been on board with his family, fell from deck 16 onto the pier. The 16-year-old boy had been trying to climb from an eighth-deck balcony because he didn’t have his room card. Laurent Mercer, from the French-speaking Wallis and Futuna islands northeast of Fiji, lost his footing while trying to climb from an adjacent balcony and fell onto the concrete pier below, sustaining major head injuries. The ship’s medical team attempted CPR, but the boy was pronounced dead from major head trauma at 11:42 a.m. The ship was in the midst of a seven-day Caribbean cruise.Upload News
