Anchorages in the US and Spanish Virgin Islands

We'll be spending a full month (March) in the US and Spanish Virgin Islands this year and desperately need advice about suitable anchorages. We've been to the BVIs three times in recent years and are familiar with a few anchorages.
Have been staying on mooring balls quite often in the past but we are trying to lower costs a little this time around so looking to stay on the hook as often as possible.
Our intention is to see as many of the USVI islands as time allows including St Croix. We are also going to try to get over to Vieques and Culebra off of Puerto Rico...... wind permitting.
Any and all experience-based recommendations would be truly appreciated.

Did you already look here? There's not a lot to add unless you have specific questions. USVI Options for 8 Day Trip

Obviously the post I linked is for a shorter time frame. Unless you have a watermaker onboard you will need to plan a trip to Puerto Rico or St Thomas to top off.

Enjoy your trip.
