Default Anyone book a repo recently with cruise airfare?

Has anyone booked a repositioning cruise for the next 6 months and gotten a good deal on the one way airfare to europe through the cruiseline? One way air seems to be as much as RT but I've heard sometimes you can get air for $450ish through the lines.

Post itinerary/departure city if you've seen deals lately.

Thanks!

I have one in March with Azamara Quest from Miami to Sevelle, Spain with free airfare. If I check out the cruise on the Azamara site, I am paying less for my cruise, flight, and post hotel than the cruise only at this time.

Did you sign up with some special or has the cruise gone up in price since you booked?

For open jaw tickets... returning to a different city than you departed for.. and for one ways on repositioning cruises are the only times I find that cruise line air is often much less expensive than booking it on your own.

For flights where you simply need a regular return ticket, most of the time you can do better, and get better flight times, booking your own.

Booked a one way ticket for a TA in October thru RCL choiceair from Raleigh to Barcelona for $450. Leave Raleigh mid afternoon thru Atlanta and straight to Barcelona.

The best price I could do myself was 3 times choiceair.
