Hello travel friends,
We may actually get to do two trips to Europe next year, but I need help figuring out flights. We are considering doing the VFR and our dates are somewhat flexible. The dates we are considering are as follows;
1. VFR Oct 16th-Oct 25th-We would depart Seattle on the 14th and return on the 27th. $3,195pp(tour price)
2. VFR Nov 2-Nov 11th-We would depart Seattle on the 31st and return on the 13th. $2,695pp(tour price)
The second tour is quite a bit less than the first one, so that is always a factor in the decision. The other two factors are flights and cruise ships in port at Venice. In looking at flights, it looks like the best price/time in air etc. might be to take Norwegian out of Seattle, stopping in Gatwick and then taking easy jet to Venice. However, we have never flown Norwegian and their website does not show the easy jet flight. So, my question is, how do you book this? Do you book Norwegian on their website and then book easy jet on another? On goggle flights it shows them paired together. Then it looks like we would take either Aer Lingus or Lufthansa on the return, so it would be two one way flights. We don't mind paying a bit more for good schedules and less stops.
We already have to depart from Anchorage, so we use Alaska airline miles to get to Seattle.
Then, what site should I look at to see which cruise ships are in port in Venice on the days we would be there?
Thanks in advance for all help!!!
