Caribbean cruise ships

These seem boring to us. They stop at the same main port at every island and we see the same dumpy towns and T shirt shops at every stop. Has anyone done any interesting cruising on a private yacht that stops at all the neat places the cruise ships do not? We are considering a private sailing catamaran for adventure and fun and would love to hear from anyone that has also done this.

I second the advice about the BVIs. I sailed there many times and never got tired of visiting the beautiful islands - far less touristy than the American Virgins. I'm glad to see the Moorings are still in operation. We first chartered a boat from them in about 1980 when they were just starting out and had a very simple operation.

Thanks, we have booked a trip with the charter catamaran Mustang Sally. They can be seen at [original link] We are really looking forward to it.
