Beating cruise ship crowds.

I see advice to go to the Acropolis when it opens to avoid crowds and then walk to the Agora and Plaka. Could this work better in reverse? Sleep in and go to the Plaka and Agora first and then the Acropolis later that afternoon after the cruise ship crowds have left? Some cruise ships arrive at 6:00 am, so I might not beat them and the Acropolis and museum are open until 8:00 pm.
