We are thinking of going to Barcelona, Spain to pick up the Magic's last European cruise before it heads home to Galveston on November 13. When I checked last night, it is possible to pay as little as $799 for a 16 day transatlantic cruise! HOWEVER......When I checked one way airfare from McAllen, TX to Barcelona it is around $1900--one way!
Roundtrip fare is as low as $800. Here is my question:
Could we book a roundtrip airfare and just not show up for the return flight? Or is there another way to get around paying almost $2000 one way--for one person?
Mcallen (MFE) to Barcelona (BCN) 26-Oct-11
1 Adult $ 438.00 USD
Taxes and Fees $ 223.80
Optional Trip Insurance $ 36.40
Total Price $ 698.20 USD
Didn't know you departure date so I just used 10/26/2011.
Now, granted it involves 2 stops. There were a few other flights with slightly higher cost. Not sure you can find it for less than 2 stops this cheap. The fare was with oneworld Alliance.

20 years ago we had Johnny Cash, Bob Hope and Steve Jobs. Now we have no Cash, no Hope and no Jobs. Please don't let Kevin Bacon die.
I would have to agree, this is one instance it may be worth checking into cruise/air. They sometimes can get it cheaper. That is the problem with an open jaw flight, finding the same problem when looking for air to and from Alaska with different ports...Good luck and let us know what deal you find.
