AUTUMN CRUISING MEANS SPECTACULAR FOLIAGE, IMAGINATIVE THEMES, HISTORIC CROSSINGS AND NEW ITINERARIES

 AUTUMN CRUISING MEANS SPECTACULAR FOLIAGE, IMAGINATIVE THEMES,
 HISTORIC CROSSINGS AND NEW ITINERARIES
 NEW YORK, Aug. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- This fall, when the last crowds of summer vacationers have retreated, cruise lines will offer travelers some of the most varied cruise options of the year.
 From the Canadian Maritimes to Africa's game reserves, from the Caribbean to Europe's capitals, the upcoming fall cruise season will have something for everyone.
 "Autumn is quite possibly one of the best times to take a cruise," said James G. Godsman, president of Cruise Lines International Association. "Not only is it full of unusual itineraries and 'theme' cruises, it is the most economical season to take advantage of what is already the best vacation value."
 Autumn's most spectacular cruises are voyages that traverse the areas of the U.S. ablaze with nature's changing colors -- the New England coast and cruises up and down the Mississippi and Ohio rivers. And the 1992 fall lineup of special interest cruises includes once-in-a- lifetime themes such as "Crossword Bonanza," "Theater at Sea," "1940s Remembered" and "Columbus Quincentenary."
 "These specialty cruises are in addition to the popular jazz, Big Band, chocolate fantasy, 50s/60s revival and country music cruises, offered every year," added Godsman.
 Virtually every cruise line will offer special rates of promotions in addition to incentives to book early. For example, one cruise line is offering a two-for-one promotion on getaway cruises; another line will provide up to seven free hotel nights when passengers pay 90 days in advance.
 A three-week cruise/safari in November includes pre-and post-cruise hotel stays in Paris, round-trip airfare from New York, charter flights to and from the ship and a 16-day cruise to Kenya and the Seychelles -- starting at $240 a day, per person.
 One cruise line that sails the Mediterranean offers an all-inclusive fall cruise including round-trip international airfare, one night in a first-class hotel plus sightseeing for a per diem starting at $160 per person.
 During fall -- when ships are redeployed from their European, Alaskan or Bermuda itineraries -- cruise lines also offer "repositioning" cruises, the most popular being transatlantic crossings and trans-canal cruises. And fares are usually quite exceptional.
 Fall is just around the corner and CLIA recommends making plans now. For information about autumn cruising, visit any CLIA-affiliated travel agency.
