Paradise Point Tram (tickets)

Recommended Posts

We just returned from our Carnival Sunshine cruise, and we had a day in St. Thomas.  We decided to take the tram up to Paradise point for their the wonderful view and of course their tasty bushwacker drinks.  

I'm posting this to inform you that if you are in the military or a veteran...you can get a free ticket with proper ID and a purchase of another adult ticket.  I hope this information will save you money to spend on more bushwackers!!!

Most ship excursions are usually more than booking independently. Tickets for the skyride to Paradise Point are actually cheaper if you purchase it from the Carnival excursions desk. $19.99 and I believe at the ticket booth they were a few dollars more.

How far is Paradise Point away from where the cruise ships dock?  How do you get to Paradise Point once you get off of the ship?

It is an easy walk.  Don't forget to visit the Pirate Museum there.  Last time we went it was great.  The guy who runs it had shows on the History and Nat Geo channels.

Here is their WEBSITE:  Worth the short walk, usually there is a Pirate outside.  https://piratestreasuremuseum.com/

PS....if you think it is too expensive at least visit.  The shop is free and has a lot of artifacts.

How long does the museum take to walk through (all adults -- no kids)? We have nothing major planned for St. Thomas and this might be worth a stop, but I'm trying to get an idea of the time commitment.

Walk through the port area.....exit through the gate to the port area.  It should be almost across the street from that area.  Their website gives a lot better information than I have and it also shows the from of the building.  This LINK might help with directions:  RIGHT HERE

Sorry...I wasn't clear. How long does it take to visit/go through the museum? We're planning on doing the Sky Ride and since this is close by thought we might stop here.

Not sure about the museum, we never did the entire tour.  We just did the gift shop which you shouldn't miss.  Lots of stuff in there to see and do.  Found my pirate hat with dreads there.  Fun hat to wear on the ship.

Can you walk to the Paradise Point Tram from the cruise port, or do we need to take a taxi?

There are 2 ports. You can't walk from Royal Caribbean's port but you can from the other port.

Epic docks at Havensite(sp?). Tram is a block away or so, depending on what slip you are in.

We are on Celebrity Equinox.

I think Celebrity uses Crown dock (no sure the proper name)?

Is this dock in walking distance to the tram?

To be clear to others, it is a 10 - 20 min walk (depending on where your ship is) to the tram station from the Havensight dock where your Carnival ship docks, a taxi from Crown Bay...
