The iconic Magens Bay is back

In a milestone for the island's post-hurricane recovery, St. Thomas unveiled a newly restored Magens Bay on November 10th, eight weeks after the world-famous beach suffered extensive damage in the wake of Hurricanes Irma and Maria.

Royal Caribbean partnered with the Magens Bay Authority and USVI local government to undertake the major restoration effort, working with local contractors and businesses to remove debris, save downed trees and replant new ones, rebuild structures, and restore the white-sand coastline to its renowned beauty.

The beach, often named among the top ten beaches in the world, reopened just in time to welcome Adventure of the Seas and 3,000 Royal Caribbean guests back to the island. Magens Bay visitors enjoyed steel drum celebrations, dancing, water sports and tours, plus beautiful weather.

We're thrilled to mark this major milestone in the hurricane relief effort, and remain committed to the continued recovery of our home, the Caribbean. At the end of the month, we’ll be sailing back to San Juan, and by mid-December, back to St. Maarten. Stay tuned for more updates from these resilient islands, and come back aboard soon to see all the remarkable progress for yourself.
