St.Vincent. Next time please just visit the islands and skip the cruise. They are not really serving the customer or the islands. They only go to stops that have kick-back supported stores and shopping. They waste thousands of gallons a day of diesel fuel going no-ware and actually pollute the oceans more than they protect them. The normal stops have been over-populated and polluted so that many reefs around Mexico, Antigua, St. Thomas, St.Martin, and more are declining at alarming rates. If you want to go diving for real plan a trip to the southern Caribbean. Stay in St.Vincent and explore Horseshoe reef. Good luck.

I admit that the previous post has a VERY good point. Of your stops mentioned though, probably St Lucia. They have a good program for cruise ships. Antigua has the good diving on the opposite side of the island to the cruise ship docks.
Try Scuba Steve's in St Lucia.
