Yes, you will need a taxi, exit Penn Station on the 8th Avenue side, get on the taxi line, and, voila, away you go to the terminal. It is a little less than 2 miles away.

5 are not allowed, you may need 2 cabs, should not be a problem.

Look for a mini-van type cab at Penn Station and you will al fit in there okay. I did this on a trip to NY. I didn't see the mini van cabs too much other than at the station. There were quite a few.

The official limit for taxis is four passengers but taxis have been known to take five if the fifth passenger is a child. Since you will have three children in tow I don't think you will have any trouible finding a cab willing to take you to the cruise teminal less than two wiles away.
