Listener Question

1. We have a Carnival cruise booked out of Port Canaveral for late December. We're trying to arrange testing before we go, but are thinking about making a reservation for pier-side testing as a backup. Is there any reason we shouldn't do this?
 
2. I heard you can stay overnight on Ocean Cay. Is that true?
