I hope you do not find Neil's somewhat curt reply unhelpful. It is possible to provide some general guidance. There are trips which it is difficult or impossible to do on your own such as reef snorkelling, or long journeys to a particuler attraction. If you feel you must not miss these then you must book the ship's excursions. You will no doubt be aware that ship's trips are relatively expensive and if all you want is a shortish trip almost all Caribbean islands have a plentiful supply of taxis for you to arrange your own, especially advantageous if you befriend like minded cruisers.

There that took 2 minutes total. .... Neil.

I must admit I am definitely not a plane spo...
