honeymooners a unique discount
package. With special certificates
available from a travel agent, couples
will be sent an affidavit that must be
filled out and notarized to prove that
the couple is, in fact, getting married.
Then, the couple will be entitled to
pay full price for the first passenger,
and half price for the second.
If the Royal Caribbean and Princess
lines are beyond your budget, Carni-
val offers less expensive Caribbean
cruises which are extremely popular
with the honeymoon set.
On board the Festivale for a seven-
day cruise to the lower Caribbean,
honeymooners may stay in the
Verandah Suite which offers a private
balcony, king-size bed, sitting area
and bathtub for $2,395 during the
peak season, certain dates from
January through March. In base
sailing times — during the month of
January, and April through June this
cabin costs $2,195.
If you really want to save money on
your honeymoon, there are always
inside staterooms with upper and
lower berths — that's right, bunk
beds. During the peak season, these
cabins cost $1,145: in base season,
$1,075.
You can also save money if you do
not fly to the embarkation points.
Most lines will deduct $250 per
person from the fare if you provide
your own transportation to the cruise.

Tipping

One extra cost you can calculate
ahead is gratuities.
While it is up to the passenger to
decide how much to tip each crew
member, Lynn Sands Herron from
Bee Kalt Travel usually tells her clients
to figure on $55 per person for a
seven-day cruise. A safe guideline to
work with is $2.50 per day per person
for cabin stewards and waiters.
Carnival Cruise Lines recommends
$1.50 per person per day for the
busboy at your table. Personnel such
as wine stewards, bar waiters, bell-
boys and deck stewards are usually
tipped 15 percent of the bill at the
time of service.
You may choose to tip your maitre
d' and head waiter, particularly if you
are trying to switch your meals from
