Mifi for Bahamas

Looking to buy an unlocked Novatel Mifi 2 [5792] 4G LTE mobile broadband global hotspot in Lauderdale to take to the Bahamas in January for 3 months.
I want to then buy a data subscription plus Sim card to use in it from BTC.
We want to use this as a hotspot on board for a MacBook Pro and an IPad to get weather and communicate with family back up in Canada. I'll have a cel with a voice plan and texting with Rogers that will do me just fine for the amount of calling and texting I'll be doing plus a Delorme InReach with a moderate plan for emergency texts etc.
Has anyone had any bad experiences with this Novatel model, and/or can you recommend a better unit or way of doing what we hope to do for data?
We're going to jump from Lauderdale to West End and check in. Then, go to the Lucaya area where I would purchase the Sim and plan with a BTC store. Then, we're off to the Berry's, Nassau, Upper Exumas and cross back via Bimini in early April.
