We flew into Tampa in April 2004 and will be flying in again in April 2005. For the 2004 flight I booked the air in early January 2004 and I just booked the airfare for April 2005. I've found it generally drops a little right after Christmas and then goes back up again in January. We fly during a school vacation week so I don't wait until we get too close. I booked the April 2005 cruise in June 2004 and checked airfare daily. It went from about $325/pp during the summer, $250/pp in the fall, to $400/pp over the holidays and I just booked at $168/pp. Hope this helps.
