CRUISE GUIDE

This is a list of major cruises departing from ports in Florida and San Juan, Puerto Rico, through July 1990, as reported to the Times by the cruise lines. While the information was correct as of press time, readers are cautioned to ask their travel agents or the cruise lines to double-check dates of travel and itineraries. These fares are based on double occupancy. Many of the cruise lines will reduce the prices listed if the passenger doesn't take advantage of the discounted air-fare addition to reach the ship's home port. While phone numbers are provided for some cruise lines, many of the companies prefer that bookings be made through travel agents. Cruises return to the port of embarkation, unless otherwise noted.From St. Petersburg
