Communications in the Caribean (cell phone)

Hello Everyone

I was wondering if anyone knows what the best way to keep cell service is while cruising in the Caribean.

I will be sailing from St. Marteen to points south of there.

Is there a cell company that covers the whole Caribean?

Should I get pay as you go plans at each new island?

My ATT people where saying they had a plan which comes out to a little less than a dollar / minute which strikes me as very expensive.

I do have a satellite phone but that is even more expensive.

Any recommendations?

Andreas
