I'm nervous about my 11:30 domestic flight to Toronto. You need to be at YVR about 2 hrs before a domestic flight. Flights to US even earlier because US customs and immigration is done at YVR. Personally, I don't think there is a time window that would allow you to do that flight the day of debarkation. Staying overnight and enjoying Vancouver for a day would be a pleasant way to end a cruise, however.

In addition to security you will clear US customs at YVR therefor a full two hours should be allowed for pre-flight time. If you can handle your own luggage and self-disembark an 1130 is doable if you can't self-disembark then I would think in terms of 1200 to 1230. If you are flying to Toronto or Montreal and then changing planes you could deduct an hour from these times as you will clear customs at that airport.

Yes. You need to exit the ship, clear Canadian Immigration and Customs; get to the airport; check in; clear US Immigration and Customs; clear security; before even getting to your departure gate.

Your problem then becomes the fact there are no afternoon connections to get you to Florida because of time differences you'd then arrive in the middle of the night. You'll need to catch an late afternoon connection (there are no non-stops to Florida; Atlanta and Cuba are the closest non-stops), and then a red-eye to Florida
