I am helping my husband plan a trip that he will taking with his mom this October. They will be going on a cruise that starts in Barcelona and ends in Rome. All the reservations are set except for one thing: flights.
They will be flying from NYC. It seems that NYC/Barcelona flights are expensive. My husband wonders if it makes sense to get round-trip flights for Rome, and when they arrive in Rome at the beginning of the trip, travel to Barcelona from there.
Does that make any sense, and might it be more affordable than two flights, one from NYC to Barcelona and one from Rome to NYC?
