I didn't know you were doing a domestic departure. That changes the timing somewhat. You can plan to be checking in around 1:30 or 2:00.

Traffic is the big variable, but in my experience about an hour. Checking Google Maps right now (later than you'd be trying) bears this out.

If this is a crossing the VIP check-in line should save you time. On the Christmas Caribbean cruise there are so many Platinums and Diamonds that I've seen the VIP line longer than the regular line...

Someone here posted about an expensive tuxedo being damaged by the wet cleaning process.

It does give instructions on being picked up by a cab after parking, and it mentions that the lot is guarded on non-ship days. By all means verify but I think you'll be fine.

There's a story behind that. Ferrari wouldn't give them a car so they used replicars built on Corvette chassis instead.

Oh, there can frequently be a line for the planetarium show on QM2, because they run one program after another when the planetarium is in operation (the facility doubles as the lecture theater) and...

One-way car rentals in Florida often don't have a drop fee - you should be able to rent a car for the day for something in the range of $50-75.

With luggage you might need UberXL or even two cars. It depends on how much you're bringing.
