How should I book an overnight ferry from Athens to Crete via the Internet?

I'll be traveling to Greece next month, and part of our tentative itinerary includes an overnight ferry trip from Piraeus to Hania (aka Chania), Crete. The date we wish to travel is fixed, and from my research there is a ferry I can take every night, so schedules shouldn't be a big issue.
From what I've heard, its generally a good idea to make a reservation for overnight ferries so I'll be certain to get a cabin. However, most sites also say that the ferry system is complicated and unregulated, so you need to be very sure that the person you get the booking from is reliable and will get you the ticket and reservation.
I'd prefer to do the booking online. So far I've found several ferry booking sites, but I have no idea which ones are the more reliable ones. Does anybody have advice on how I should go about doing this?
