that is cutting it close, it is doable but personally i would feel more comfortable with a bit more wiggle room just in case, you would need to self disembark(carry all your luggage off the ship) on the first call, grab a cab and head to the airport
On my recent cruise we had a 12:30 return flight .We left the ship at 8:30 . Our taxi got into perhaps the worst traffic jam one could imagine .We got to the airport at 9:30 . If we had an early flight we would have possibly not made it.
We fly southwest which, I guess is why I'm not worried about missing my flight
However we always do walk-off and have always been at the airport well before 9 am. It can be done. In saying that we weren't on the Oasis or Allure so maybe that will be different.

Sounds too close for me, I wouldn't try anything before 11:30.

Twice we booked 10am flights as the later one was just too long to hang about for. We had no difficulty taking our own luggage off and being at the airport before 8am. However, that was not on the Allure, so I am not sure what disemarkation day with 6K passengers looks like. The biggest delay is likely to be at FLL itself, they don't have enough TSA screeners to handle an average rush hour, unless things have improved a lot.
I would say go for it but have a plan B available..
We had a 10:10 Flight coming off Ruby Princess in November. I was pretty nervous. We had plenty of time, we walked off with our own luggage. At that time the airport was dead. I probably wouldn't do it again quite that early. Everything went our way and it's not always going to happen that way.
