Welcome to AFF saligari :)

In general one way tickets are expensive compared to returns, but some airlines have one-way pricing. Unfortunately for you not many options whereby a single airline serves both MEL and ATH (just TG and SQ, plus OS until March?).

Most RTWs don't allow trans-continental surface segments (ie bits not flown) and even when they do you are losing a lot of the value of the ticket.

If you have enough points in a program that allows one way awards (eg QFF), then that may be a good way to solve the problem.

Another way is to purchase a round the world with a surface segment say between London and Athens. Fly all the way to Athens. Take the cruise. Pick up a cheap trans-atlantic fare back to London and resume your RTW.
