Covid Test Question (Carnival, ex Los Angeles)

We have a cruise booked with Carnival mid May.

Unhelpfully, the reminder to have a test email does not state how far in advance the test can be taken. Does anyone have knowledge / experience of this? Any recommendations on the cheapest way to do this?

If fully vacinated no sooner than 3 days prior to embarkation.

HAVE FUN. BE SAFE. COVID-19 GUEST PROTOCOLS
TESTING REQUIREMENTS
Guests who are up to date with their vaccines may take their test within three days prior to sailing. Up to date means a person has received all recommended COVID-19 vaccinations, including any booster dose, when eligible.

Examples: If the sailing is on Saturday, guests who are up to date with their vaccines may take their test as early as Wednesday and as late as Saturday, if guaranteed to receive results in time for check-in. A fully vaccinated guest who is not up to date with their vaccines may take their test no earlier than Thursday and as late as Saturday.
There is different guidance for certain itineraries, suggest reading the info at the link. We've used CVS and will likely use Walgreens for testing for a May cruise.

Bumping. The current requirement is a PCR test within 48 hours or self administered test within 24 hours. What is the best way to meet this requirement given the length of the flight from the West coast and the time difference that causes the flight to arrive 2 days after departure? Does Carnival recognize that a test taken in the US on a Tuesday would be within the window for a Thursday sailing?

Don't know anything about Carnival, but we needed to self-tests that were proctored over the internet in order to meet the time requirements of our cruise and our travel schedule. Worked out fine.

Since this thread is specifically about ex-LA cruises, what flight length are you talking about?
