When to book Dec 28-Jan 5 flights return BUF/YYZ to MIA/FLL

I am holding a cruise sailing on Dec 29th and am looking for the cheapest air.

It seems that all the air prices are EXTREMELY high (even this far in advance). I am looking to fly from BUF or YYZ (Toronto) to MIA or FLL, leaving on Dec. 28th and returning on Jan. 5th.

In people's experience, do the flights ever drop in price closer to December? Right now it is looking at around $850+ for round trip...which seems very high this far in advance. I am aware it is a pricey time to travel...but I did not expect it to be this pricey.

Thanks

Toronto, Canada

Flights from Ontario/Upstate NY to Florida , on a weekend, around Xmas and N Years will always be expensive. I would imagine that Sunday Jan 5th is a very busy day for flights back north and it looks like many flights have sold out of the cheaper seats. I don't see flights getting cheaper at all--getting sold out is more likely

Just coming back on Monday Jan 6th would save you $200 vs coming back Jan 5th (for AC Miami-Toronto)

As said above, you are flying a very expensive time. Friends who used to go to Florida during that time period would book as soon as tickets were available. I would say, you should have booked yesterday!

This is one of the busiest times for the airlines so don't expect fares to drop.
