We are cruising and stopping at a few islands so trying to figure the cheapest way to call home.

Depends a lot on the length of the calls you expect to make. Pay-per-use rates are usually $1.50 to $2.50  per minute, or Easy Roam is $10 per day of use, including texts and data. You can look at Koodo's travel options here.

You also need to check if your phone is compatible with local carriers there when roaming.

You could also use wifi and call come with an app like google hangouts or skype?
