I would rent a cheap hotel or car for the day.

In the past I've booked a day room at the Marriott Marina... cost $75. Worked well.

We had it the reverse - at the beginning of the trip. We rented a cheap car for the day. That worked terrific.

look into booking a ships post-cruise excursion, that way you won't have to worry about your luggage or getting to the airport ..

I like the post cruise excursion idea. They will put you and your luggage on a bus, do anexcursion (like the everglades for instance) then bring you to the airport in time for your flight.

We did exactly what PapaBill suggested. We did the Everglades Airboat tour in Sawgrass. They picked us up from the pier, put our luggage on the bus and then took us to the airport after the tour. We had a great time, and learn something too!

We tried to do the excursion once and enough people didn't sign up so they cancelled it. We ended up having to go to the airport and just wait. If you decide to go the excursion route, have a back up plan.
