Hi Steelerfan, welcome to Cruise-Chat. It is possible you could make an 11:45, but everything would have to go smoothly. You might arrive at 7, but the ship has to be cleared by Customs and Immigration. Sometimes this happens quickly, sometimes not. If you don't do self-debarkation, then you have to find your luggage. Even taking your luggage by yourself, you will have to go through Customs. Then you have a 45 minute drive to Ft. Lauderdale (that's if the traffic is good). If you can catch a later flight, I would advise it. I wouldn't suggest anything before noon for a Miami departure. For Ft. Lauderdale, I'd suggest a 1pm or later departure. There are quite a few services, taxi/van, Shuttles, limos. If you'll look just a few posts down, at pooke's post, I placed a couple of links there that might help you. Instead of stressing yourself out at the end of a relaxing cruise, try getting a later flight. Best wishes for a fantastic cruise, and once again, welcome aboard!
