We present the results of our study of the dynamics of two-dimensional Kerr cavity solitons. The solitons are absolutely stable over a substantial parameter domain. We analyze their dynamics beyond the instability boundary, finding regions of stable oscillation and of fivefold or sixfold azimuthal instability. The Hopf oscillation is surprisingly robust, owing to the influence of a lower-amplitude unstable soliton.
