We are sailing July 2014 on a cruise that starts in Venice and ends in Barcelona. I was browsing airfare for this year for approximately those dates, flying NE US to Venice and then Barcelona to Northeast US, just out of curiosity. It looks like booking one-way tickets (for example New York to Venice and then Barcelona to NY) is about twice the cost of round-trip using the same airport. Can anyone give me advice on how to handle this? Is there a "window" where the airfare might be more reasonable than it seems it will be at this point? We paid about $1525 RT/person when we flew PHL-Barcelona-PHL in summer 2011. The airfares I am seeing now, because they are not round trip can be over $2000/person/one way. EEK!!! Looking for any advice you might share, especially if you are doing a DCL cruise this summer with different embarkation and debarkation ports.
