The view was amazing, but we were not impressed with anything else. We were on the NCL Getaway and took the 10 minute walk to the skyride. After getting our wristbands, we were instructed to stand in front of a green screen for a family picture. They were charging $10 for a picture of us standing in front of a... More

Besides the rude guy at pirates chest, it was worth it for the view. There's a nice little cafe too. Would make for a nice lunch.

While the tramway provided a very pretty view of the coast it was SO expensive with nothing memorable at the top except for the view. The restaurant was mediocre and shops not worth it. There are so many other places on the island you can see a great view for so much less

Went up right at sunset and got the sun going down as we were riding up. Beautiful views over Charlotte Amalie as the sun set and after dark. A few shops and a bar/restaurant at the top with outdoor seating. Not sure it's worth $22 to go up but oh well...if you want beautiful views over town, this is it.... More

Try to get discounted tickets from your cruise ship if possible. We went as a family of 4 for $20 total. The actual price should have been just over $60. The views are amazing and the Bushwacker drinks are fantastic - but expensive. Friendly staff with good service.

This was our first stop during our Carnival cruise excursion when we arrived to St. Thomas. It was walking distance from the ship, about 10 min to the Skyway tram. You will find a few shops along the way to the base of the Skyway. We purchased our tickets directly from the excursion desk on-board the ship, and was actually... More

We took the Paradise Point Tramway when we stopped in St. Thomas on our second cruise. The first cruise we did a snorkeling trip so this time we decided to just bum around St. Thomas ourselves. This was highly recommend by many people so we decided to check it out. First off this is really expensive. The tram ride was... More

Paradise Point Tramway was just ok to me. Once you get off of the ship the tour guides out front will tell you that the only thing that you are going to see is your ship. I’m thinking yeah, yeah, yeah, but it was the truth. It's beautiful and you can see where your cruise ship is located, but there... More

My fiancé and I came to St.Thomas on the Norwegian Epic. We caught a cab to Sapphire Beach for most of the day, and had the cab drop us off at Paradise Point on the way back from the beach. We purchased our tickets through the cruise line, as it saved us a few dollars. I have heard that this... More

We took the tramway to the top to take a breather from walking around the shops at the bottom of the hill, and are we glad we did OH WHAT A VIEW of the harbor. We relaxed, had lunch, which was outstanding and flavored the local brews. They are in the middle of some renovations to add wheel chair access,... More
