We got to port around 11. They just started boarding. Its a nice lounge while you wait. There will be food on the Lido deck when you board.
I'm not sure about how much cab fare is from the port straight to the airport but there will be cabs lined up waiting to take you where you want to go.
Life is too short to let the ship of your dreams sail without you.
