Ferry vs Private Transfers - Family of 7

We are family of 3 Adults and 4 children (10, 8, 4 and 2yr) traveling from Hvar to Dubrovnik on the 29-06-2018.

The ferry prices I was able to find for 7 travelers = €203 in total.

Private transfers with minivan door to door for 7 travelers = €319 total.

Are the ferries and taxis from Hvar to Dubrovnik Old Town easy to navigate with luggage and children or is the extra cost of the private transfer worth the time and convenience?

Thank you.

The private transfer would take longer than the catamaran.

What route will you use for the private transfer? Will the minivan be coming with you on a boat? If you use the catamaran (i.e.not the transfer) then getting 7 people from the port at Gruz to Dubrovnik old town with luggage would add quite a bit using taxis. If you're getting the catamaran at Hvar Town you'll have to walk there with your luggage as its pedestrianised. With 4 children it might be worth paying for the door-to-door transfers. However, I agree that it is worth asking how long they think it should take.
