Fort Lauderdale - self-disembarkation and travel home

My experience with self-disembarkation for a 10 am flight out of FLL the same day.
Expected arrival time into port Everglades at 7 am, but ship was docked already at 6 am.
We were up at 6 am to pack the last things in the suitcases and at 7 am, we went down to deck 5,  in line to be among the first to go ashore  we thought - already a huge queue for self-disembarkation! 
Already at  7:15 the queue did start to move and 7:45 am we were off the ship in line for immigration. 
Pretty fast and just before 8 am we entered a taxi (no waiting line) for the 15 minutes ride to airport Friday morning. With United Airlines premier access and 'TSA Pre' check-in security took less that 20 minutes.
Well in time for our 10 am departure from FLL - ready for ther 20 hours journey to Denmark. 

We ate breakfast in the United lounge.
At 10 was UA1985 ready for departure from Newark - a flight of 3 hours.
We had to wait four hours before SK 910 at 17:30 departed from Copenhagen. We had good seats in the first row in economy class with extra legroom. However, it was not much sleep. Arrival in Copenhagen 06:40 after a little more than 7 hours..
