Okay, I was looking at the possibility of doing a trans-Atlantic cruise, we saw a really good deal on Navigator OTS. However, airfare to FCO and from FLL is almost cost prohibitive. I looked at booking the two segments as one-way fares and found I could save a considerable amount - on the order of $500/pp on the cheapest fare that routes through Warsaw, and over $1000 on the cheapest fare that is more direct. The key is a great deal from one of those consolidators like airfare.com.
So, two questions;
1) do I trust my TA flight to airfare.com (I know the airline - that is not a mystery) ?
2) should I book the split one-ways? Is it legit? Are the airline booking police going to come after me? (I know that is three questions - but they are interrelated)
Thanks as always!

So you are looking to book airfare from rome back to the US. Is this correct? U want to book one way fare because u are taking the ship on a transatlantic? U are looking to use a airline consolidator to buy your ticket; have u contacted the cruise line to see what prices they quote for a oneway air? I assume since they are doing transatlantic; they will offer competitive pricing; I may be wrong with this assumption.

We are taking a HAL TA from Venice to FLL in October. I checked all over and the best price I found was from HAL from Tampa/Philadelphia/Venice. I liked the idea of not having to change planes in Rome or elsewhere, since the flight was non-stop from Philly into Venice. Living in SW Florida is a challenge air-wise.
