If you are sailing out of Miami then all things being equal I would go with Miami.
I recommend that you fly in one day before your cruise no matter what you do as it is always risky to fly the day of the cruise as a flight delay or cancellation could cause you to miss the ship. And I would select a return flight after you disembark the ship of around Noon.
As mentioned above, the smart cruiser always arrives in town at least one day prior to sailing - you do not want a delayed or cancelled flight to spoil your cruise!
