What is your favorite Southern Caribbean Island port of call?

I have been to many of the southern Caribbean islands including Antigua, Barbados, Curacao, Grenada, St Kitts, St. Lucia and Martinique. The island that I like best is Aruba.  We stayed a week at a resort there and loved the people, the weather and the beaches.  Some day  I hope to visit St. Bart's, Guadeloupe, Nevis, Dominica and St. Vincent's and the Grenadines.  I wish that these islands were closer.  Which is your favorite of these islands?

St Kitts was my favorite of the ones you have listed that I have been to.  We did a great tour of the Island with a taxi driver that we got outside of the port.  Since there were 4 of us he only charged us $20.00 each for a 3.5 hour island tour. At the end of our tour he suggested a place for lunch that was a locals hang out,  not all tourist.

Worst experience was St. Lucia,  in port next to the ship ship we booked a tour.   We were told to come back in an hour for the tour,  when we got back they said not enough people booked it so you get a refund.  By that time most of the other tours had left. If they would have told us we would have gone on one of the other tours instead of being stuck at port with no tour.

I have been to St Kitts and St Lucia, also.  I'd like to visit all the islands if I can and so far I have traveled to all the main ones.  I still have the five listed above to visit.  Hoping for a cruise that will visit several of them on one vacation.  Thanks for replying.
