Costs of Ship Tickets from Germany to NY ca. 1890

Can anyone tell me how much a ship ticket (steerage) from Germany to NY cost in the early 1890s? And more important, was there any discount for children? If yes, how much and until what age?

The reason I am asking is that I discovered a family which could be the one I am looking for (Boruch Fesersky), but the ages of all family members seems too low. I am wondering if the family misrepresented their age in order to get discounts.
