Do I need to take swimming towels on this trip or are they provided on both the ship and castaway cay?

On our last cruise Dec. 2003 our ship was unable to dock at Castaway Cay because of the currents. We want to go again, but really want to see the island. Is there a better time of year to go so we won't run into this problem again?
