Athens Port Taxi Question

We arrive via cruise ship to Piraeus port and need a taxi with our luggage to a hotel in Athens. Are we better off pre-arranging a taxi or just catching one at the taxi stand? At the taxi stand, what should I expect the cost to be to the Plaka area? I've already gotten a couple of quotes for a pre-arranged ride and am curious if it's necessary as I'm not sure what time we will be disembarking. Thank you so much for your help!

the least expensive should be a PASSING driver from just outside the port - not one of the guys who wait on the port...

Hey and welcome Tammy:-) Yes, a 'passing' taxi as mentioned would certainly be more economical..say around 20E or so?! Bottom line, when cruise ships disembark at the piers there at Piraeus, it's pure havoc..since most of the other hundreds of pax are looking for same! Personal call here..but if you've got luggage you don't feel like totting them around, maybe the expense would be worth it?! Enjoy!
