Well, obviously you have time for some sightseeing. Get yourself an inexpensive guide book, such as DK "Top Ten Venice", and plan what you would like to do.

You can for speed take. A taxi to your hotel. Then go off and explore Maybe take the vaporetto no 1 up the grand canal. Go into San Marco late afternoon or early the next day to appreciate it without tourists, Maybe pick 1 or 2 things that you would like to see and save the rest for next time. a gondola ride would be best at dusk.

You will have some time to explore, take a gondola ride, and have supper.

To the extent that you can, try to get some sleep on the plane, since in addition to not having much time, you will also be experiencing jetlag/fatigue. Wish you could get to Venice a few days prior to your cruise.
