But, I'm still wondering why they are based in Barcelona - a long term contract or something? It really prevents them from doing Venice & Greece in one cruise this way. My favorite itinerary ever was from Istanbul to Venice - I think they would sell that in a second!!
I think DCL probably wants to stick with roundtrip cruises whenever possible, as it makes airfare easier (and sometimes less expensive) to book. DCL is also very familiar with Barcelona, and there are a lot of flight options there. We're flying from Venice after a cruise in May, and the airline options are considerably less than out of a major cruise port like Barcelona.
