yes, checked Delta...have checked them all. Delta is a little less (around $1600+) but not worth having a layover in New York. We have 3 major airports in the DC/Baltimore area, and high prices to Europe. Thanks,

This is depressing because I have not purchased flights yet for May--and these are not far off from prices i am seeing. a deal usually pops up by now, but no dice this year.

It may be the only way to save a little is via other cities then non-stop train to Rome Termini (3 hours Milan, 1:10 Naples, 1:45 Florence.)

Google flights (11 to 15 hour journey).
Turkish Air, Dulles-Milan via Istanbul $1,342.
KLM/Alitalia Dulles-Florence via Amsterdam $1,441.
Air France Dulles-Naples via Paris $1,473.
Hate to mention Aeroflot Dulles-Rome via Moscow $1,100 as I'm not a fan.
It can be a little more travel, and there's nothing like direct flights but you can spend a little time in these other Italian cities while you're at it.

I did it. I bought our tickets...$1745 pp. Thanks all of you. I've been waiting for it to go down and after hearing from all of you, it most likely will not. When I starting looking last summer when we booked the cruise, fare was in the $1600 range. Now $1745. As Ira above said, buy it and don't look back. Since we are crusing, we don't have the option of flying from a different city and we wanted a direct flight to save time. Again, thanks so much.
