Depending upon the number of ships in port, finding a taxi might not be so easy. For the driver to get to the drop-off point at the pier, he has to go up a ramp, and then it's a long wait to go down another ramp after he's picked you up. The past few times, we ended up walking across 12th Avenue to catch a taxi. If I was going to Newark, I'd use a car service. It's more comfortable, too.
