Cruises - CelebEclipse-MIA-DTW 11am saturday AA flight after cruise?

Can I make this flight:
MIA-DTW 11am Saturday after debarkation from Celebrity Eclipse.
Can't find the answer on Celeb website, although their affiliate air booking site gives that flight as #1 option.
(Carnival's site FWIW says earliest flight should be 11am)

The Eclipse starts debarkation at 7:30 AM. If you check with guest relations, they can get you the earliest. Take your luggage with you (shouldn't be carrying too much if you're rushing for a flight). Immigration was very quick at the Port of Miami. Taxis line up outside; takes less than 15 minutes to get one with a long line (yours probably will be short at that time of the morning), and about 20 minutes to get to MIA. Taxi fee is a flat $25 for one, $26 for two.
Make sure to check in and get your boarding pass the night before. The computer lounge is closed in the morning.
btw, Qsine was completely worth it; Tuscan Grille was not. Have fun!

Probably. I had a longer taxi line at the Port of Miami due to some diversion in the port entrance. The cabs were slow in getting in and it took 30 minutes to get a cab around 8:30 am.
The Eclipse had an offer on the last night for 20 minutes internet access when I was on it in March. It's just enough time to print out a boarding pass if you do it at an unusual hour. Actually, wifi on the ship was pretty good.
If you do have a lot of luggage, try the luggage valet program if it is offered http://cruiseforums.cruisecritic.com/showthread.php?t=1507287
Bistro on Five is great for a boarding day lunch. Small surcharge but delicious crepes. The AquaSpa cafe has great breakfast and lunch, too.
