Life on board MS Fram


The Ship

Built in 2007, MS Fram was designed with one mission in mind: to bring her guests closer to wildlife, nature and unforgettable experiences. Named after the original Fram, the most famous explorer ship of its time, she remains true to the original spirit of this great sailing legend. The interior, decorated with artwork created by Arctic-region artists, reflects both the Arctic and Antarctic with photos of those early expeditions and paintings of snow-capped peaks. Glass sculptures resembling icebergs adorn the staircase landings. Her spacious outside decks provide access to the very front of the ship and is the ideal spot to observe magnificent scenery and marine wildlife.

In 2020 MS Fram will be completely upgraded, transforming her into a brand-new expedition ship. The refurbishment will see a complete upgrade to all cabins and suites, as well as more environmentally friendly engines. She will also see a complete transformation to all public areas, including new restaurants and a high-tech Science Centre.


Accommodation

True to Fram's Norwegian heritage, her cabins are comfortable with modern amenities. With 127 cabins, you have a choice of spacious cabins and a number of superior suites to choose from. Suites are named after Norwegian polar heroes and include six grand suites with balconies and teak lounge chairs for viewing the fabulous land and seascapes.


Cuisine and Dining

Enjoy fine cuisine in the restaurant. The floor has different levels, so no matter where your table is placed, there are views to the outdoors. On your walk to the restaurant you will see an exhibition of original artefacts from the historic expeditions of Amundsen and Nansen, the great Norwegian explorers of the original Fram. A balcony at the far end of the restaurant ensures you will not miss a thing when wildlife appears during your meal.


Enrichment

The Qilak (meaning "sky") observation lounge on deck 7 is an exceptionally well-designed space, surrounded on three sides by floor-to-ceiling windows. The front-row swivel seats are a popular spot to keep warm and watch the ship slowly cruise past spectacular icebergs.

The Nunami (meaning "on land") lobby, located next to the reception desk on deck 4 is a favourite area to relax, exchange onshore stories with your fellow passengers and of course, take in the incredible views from the large windows.

During the expedition, crew members deliver outstanding lectures based on their academic specialties in dedicated lecture rooms.

A gift shop stocked with beautiful Scandinavian sweaters, winter gear such as gloves and hats, and additional toiletries is located on deck 4 behind reception.


Spa and Fitness

On deck 7 you will find a well-equipped fitness room complete with panoramic ocean view. On top of the ship you can enjoy the warmth of the sauna or bathe in one of the outdoor Jacuzzis and watch as icebergs silently pass the ship.
