TWO-FOR-ONE CRUISE FEVER BOON TO CONSUMERS

 TWO-FOR-ONE CRUISE FEVER BOON TO CONSUMERS
 MIAMI, Aug. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- An over-abundance of cruise space and


weak economy have prompted many cruise lines to offer two-for-the-price- of-one promotions this fall and winter. While two-for-one cruises are not a new phenomenon, they are more prevalent than ever before -- offering consumers some exceptional cruise bargains.
 One Miami-based company, The Cruise Line, Inc., specializes in two- for-one and other discounted cruises. "The trick is in knowing where the deals are," said Larry Fishkin, the company's president. "Travel agents are flooded with so much information, that it takes a cruise specialist to be able to assimilate and then pass on these savings to consumers. Knowledge is the key."
 Current two-for-one offerings include sailings to destinations throughout the world. Typically, they are calculated without airfare. However, for those passengers requiring air transportation, air add-ons are available or can be arranged.
 Here is a brief sample of two-for-one cruises offered by The Cruise Line, Inc. for this fall and winter:
 CARIBBEAN & MEXICO
 Seven-day Western Caribbean cruises sail roundtrip from Miami from Sept. 5 through Dec. 12, or roundtrip from New Orleans from Aug. 22 through Oct. 3. Ten-day Eastern Caribbean cruises sail on Nov. 23, Dec. 3 and 13 from Fort Lauderdale. Also from Fort Lauderdale are seven-day cruises to the Eastern Caribbean on Oct. 3, 24 and 31. Seven- day Mexican Riviera cruises depart from San Diego and are available at two-for-one prices from Aug. 15 through Oct. 31.
 ORIENT/ASIA/HAWAII/AFRICA/TRANSATLANTIC/SOUTH AMERICA
 Fourteen-day two-for-one Orient/Asia cruises sail from Tokyo to Hong Kong departing Oct. 26, Hong Kong to Bangkok on Nov. 9 and Bangkok to Bombay on Nov. 23 and Dec. 7. From Nov. 16 through Jan. 24, 1993, 10- and 11-day cruises to the Seychelle islands and Africa are offered. Also for 1993, cruise 28 days from Bali to Bombay on Jan. 10, 1993, or 25 days to the Holy Land (Singapore to Athens) on April 28, 1993. Ten- day two-for-one sailings to the Hawaiian islands cruise on Nov. 18 and 28. Twelve-day Transatlantic crossings are available from Fort Lauderdale to London on April 19, 1993, and from New York to London on May 14, 1993. Fourteen- and 16-day Amazon River two-for-one's are offered on Jan. 4, 1993 and Feb. 17, 1993, respectively.
 The Cruise Line, Inc. publishes a magazine entitled World of Cruising which is sent free to consumers who call their toll-free number, 800-777-0707 (U.S. & Canada). World of Cruising provides useful information about cruising, as well as an updated list of cruise specials -- with average savings of $600-$2,000 per cabin on cruises to worldwide destinations.
