Flight info for Anchorage

My wife and I are planning a cruise on Carvinal May 03. We are looking at our options to get the cheapest air fare from Atlanta. We are checking to see if we might get a better fare if book a round trip to say Seattle and a one way to Anchorage to meet the boat. Does anyone have any other options I may have missed?Advise would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Scott Woodall

Your post is unclear. Where is your ship disembarking? What prices have you gotten? It sounds like you are embarking in Seward and d8isembarking in Seattle? When checking open-jaw flights, make sure you go to each airlines website, and check fares for open-jaw or multi-city fares. If you search for separate one-way fares, your pricing will be sky-high. Additionally, when I checked airfares for my Alaska cruise this past summer, I found general travel sites like expedia, travelocity, and orbitz had MUCH higher fares than if I checked each airline's website directly, even using the open-jaw/multi-city search options.
This would also be the ideal time to cash in frequent-flyer or credit card programs rewards for airfare, which is what I did this past summer. In any event, you should be able to get fares in the $450-$500/person range.

Anthony,Thanks for your reply. In doing some checking since my posting I have come to some of same info you left.We are embarking at Seward and disembarking at Vancouver. I am checking round trips from Atlanta to Seattle and one ways from Seattle to Anchorage. I am checking my Delta miles now, I have enough miles for 3 tickets if they will let me have the seats.
Thanks,
Scott

Scott:
If you are usubg your Delta miles, PLEASE check about an open-jaw route! Delta Sky Miles allows for open jaw routes, and the miles needed for a free domestic ticket INCLUDES ALASKA & CANADA, which means you can potentially fly into Anchorage and return home via Vancouver, all for the same milelage requirements! Make sure you are fexible with your dates-you may have to stay a day before and after, which then means you can sitesee Vancouver. Also remember that you fly into Anchorage, but the ship leaves from Seward, which is 3 hrs away from Anchorage.

Help! Regarding flights from Fairbanks to Vancouver. They seem so expensive, I am talking like over $500. Anyone have any suggestions? We are doing the inside passage from Vancouver to Seward and then land tour for 4-5 days.Flying from Fairbanks, seems like flights from Anchorage are alot cheaper????
