I'm sorry to hear about your parent.

Unfortunately there is currently no Texting option for the Caribbean. Is your phone HSPA? One thing you can do is unlock your phone with Koodo and get a prepaid SIM with a carrier there. It's only $50 to unlock the phone with Koodo you just need to call in and if you've had 3 consecutive months of service with no past due amount they can help you unlock the phone.

Hi there... As Curtuless said, there is no roaming pack for the Caribbean, at this point is only available to the U.S.A... You can see the rates on the image I am attaching... Just be careful since while you are on the cruise if your phone connects to service will be to Satellite rates, which are very expensive...

Cruise ships do offer wi-fi for a fee if that helps to catch up with email etc.
