If money is not a big issue and you want to make it really interesting, I recommend a stopover in either Iceland or on the Azores. Icelandair is well-known and SATA can get you from BOS to PDL for about $415 - and NYC to BOS is a joy on the Acela. PDL-TXL would, of course, cost extra - I have no idea how much.
Walk together, talk together all ye peoples of the earth. Then, and only then, shall ye have peace.

I would probably go for the EI option since it's extremely cheap and pretty direct. And maybe a nice airline to try
You could also fly either Air India or Kuwait Airways from NYC to London and then buy a seperate ticket.
I would strongly recommend you to visit flug.idealo.de and put your dates here. You will see that STA travel offers special one way fares on BA at 380 EUR. And also ABC Travel Service, which I believe is popular with US Army members stationed in Germany offer pretty cheap KLM one ways at 240 EUR...
Not sure which ship you are on, but some cruise companies have cheap flight packages for transatlantics. Might be an option too, and if they have a friendly air department you may always ask for a special routing that suits your needs...
