I think you would be better off doing a taxi. IF you do stay at the airport, many/most of the hotels offer shuttle service to/form the airport. Then you would only have to pay for a taxi to get to the port (figure $35 with tip for a van sized taxi) So you get 2 or 3 taxis from the hotel to the port. (This is our plan for Miami in a couple of weeks)

BUT even if you decided to stay downtown, the extra taxi ride from downtown to the ship would only be $15 to $20. The cruise line charges per person not matter how many people you have. The taxis charge per taxi load. With ten people the per person cost can quickly out strip the per taxi cost.
