Default Transfer Houston Downtown-Galveston / Galveston-IAH airport

Dear cruisers
I'm new on this board. In two weeks we're going to be on the Galaxy. It's gonna be our 4th cruise. Very much excited.
So far I always booked the cruises via a TA in Texas, but arranged the transfers and flights on my own (we need transatlantic flights each time). This time we're going to fly into Newark first, spend a few days there, before going on to Phillie and then Houston. We spend the night in Houston downtown (Hyatt) and will travel into Galveston on cruise departure day (April 13). What's the best way to organise the transfer to the ship? Shall we just pick a taxi from the hotel? Or preorder a transportation? On the way back we'll fly directly back to Switzerland from Houston IAH, should we book the transfer on the ship, or look for a taxi after debarkation? Our (international) flight from IAH leaves at 15.20h, so a combined tour/transfer is not possible.
What are your suggestions? Thank you very much for your help.
SwissChris
