We visited here in February 2014 when in port during our Disney cruise. We did our excursion during the day and had two hours to spare before leaving port so we walked the short walk to the gondolas. The ride was free for our two kids (2 and 5) and we paid for two adults. We climbed the stairs and... More

Stay away from them !!! They stole our credit card information. I would say go and use cash but I really don't think they deserve the business.

This is located not too far from the cruise ship port, as we just docked with Carnival. We bought our tickets through Carnival and saved a couple dollars. There are great view, and awesome photo opts once you reach the top. There's a restaurant at the top, and we enjoyed a few daiquiris. Not sure if it's worth $20pp, but... More

If you choose to go up the tram, DO NOT use a credit card. We suspect that our numbers were stolen by them because we were on a cruise and we only used our card at 'Paradise Point'. Our bank notified us of unusual activity - random charges in Illinois. So, here's our experience with this place besides the card... More

If you are going to St Thomas this is a must do. At the top is a restaurant and bar. The restaurant is nothing to write home about I would recommend only for a snack. Have a cold beer or frozen drink and enjoy the view. Come later in afternoon and see the sunset it is unreal overlloking the port... More

Visited St Thomas last week and did the tramway lift. I can say that once you get to the top, the view and picture taking is beautiful!!... but...to get to the lift, you must climb alot of steep steps. Not really much else at the top, there are some vendors but nothing special. I think you could do just as... More

We just did this tram ride last week when we arrived on a cruise. The view is beautiful but they stole our credit card numbers and made several charges prior to us getting back into the states. We know it was them because the charge for the ride is from Texas and all of our fraudulent charges were also in... More

Great service and pictures overlooking Long Bay and the cruise ship harbor. And the best braut hot dogs with... More

My wife and I recently took the Paradise Point Tramway during our cruise to St Thomas. The Tramway is located right across from the where the cruise ships dock. The roundtrip ride cost $20 per adult. We had to wait about 15 minutes for our ride to the top. While we waited, our picture was taken and we were told... More
