Short walk from the cruise ship. The price was 21 dollars per ticket. They do give a military discount but I left my ID on the ship. The place was totally empty which was really cool with us. The ride up to the top was nice. Once at the top of the attraction there are many shops and a restaurant... More

Granted this is more or less a ride to a gift shop/bar, but you have a very nice view on your way up and back down from Paradise Point. Drinks were pretty strong, cost isn't as bad as the others have mentioned, plus you have free Wifi! I do need to point out that there's a lady at the gift... More

The view from here at sunset is probably my favorite of all places around the world ever. It is just magical -the islands dotting the sparkling water as the sun goes down is truly breath taking. And no matter how many times I see it, it never gets old or loses the charm. On Wed night there is a band,... More

We visited again in March 2015 ... the sky ride to the point is almost a must for cruise ship travelers! This iconic attraction has been around for decades yet it is clean, current, up to date and safe. It does not take long to ride up in the cable cars and the scenery all the way is breath taking....

We arrived by cruise ship and thought this would be a good way to see the island. There was about a 15 minute wait to catch a car. The ride up was smooth. There is a bar, shops and snack shop up top. Drinks are pricey but we took our time and enjoyed the views. A bit unorganized to go... More

We were here in October of 2010, and we were booking some shore excursions on our cruise. The view from the tram was absolutely beautiful. You could see the whole area and worth every penny. The drink at the top, the Bushwhacker, was a great and stiff drink. We had a couple, and then hiked down the back trail to... More
