It's under 2 miles from Penn Station to the West Side piers, so at about $2.50 per mile, it should be around six bucks with a tip. At busy periods you may have to wait ten minutes or so in line for a cab. However, make sure your ship is leaving from Manhattan-- Royal Caribbean's & Celebrity's ships now leave from Bayonne NJ, in which case it might pay to stay on the train to the next Amtrak station, Newark, to keep the cab ride shorter.

I understand they are going to open the Brooklyn piers again soon... That will save some money when coming in from Kennedy.
