If you don't need to be in contact constantly, finding connectivity on shore is perhaps a more attractive solution. Options range from free WiFi to purchased plans that are usually much cheaper than those onboard the ship.
As you might expect, when you own your own business, you need to be in contact with your office and clients even when on "vacation". We find ourselves in that situation.
For this particular cruise, we had one of our associates covering for us, but we did promise to keep in periodic contact. In order to do so, we went with the in port approach.
A short walk from the pier in Nassau puts you outside the Festival Marketplace where you'll find many of the ship's crew and passengers camped out on their cell phones and other devices. WiFi is free in this area, but the signal isn't always the best. It did suffice for our needs in checking emails and posting a few pictures for our followers. You might want to wait until the crowd thins out to increase the odds of getting your emails sent.
