In some of the French islands, such as Guadeloupe, you will be better off with Euros. USD are not as widely accepted.
Euros also in St Martin and Martinique, so worth checking out the currencies of all the islands you visit.
If you are not from the US remember you will be 'charged' twice. once when you buy US$ and then when they convert to local currency ( though I seem to remember Barbados has a fixed exchange rate to the dollar). By charged I mean the difference in the rate of exchange you actually get from the published exchange rate.
If you go for us$, and it is convenient, remember to take small denomination notes as the change you get will be in local currency.
