Hi Rami007 - This is "exactly" what we are doing flying into Vancouver and out of Anchorage and YES, it is much cheaper than cruise airfare. At the time we booked our flights 6 months ago our TA said it was going to be about 400.00 more per ticket to include airfare than what we paid doing the tickets seperate from the cruise. Then we found that after we bought our tickets the airfare went down even more than what we had originally paid so we got a credit back to the same airline towards flying again. We jhave been real pleased with our ticket prices. Good luck and Happy Cruising!!
