The original Fram was the most famous explorer ship of her time, and the achievements of her Arctic and Antarctic expeditions are the stuff of legend. In this spirit, the comfortable surroundings and advanced technology on today’s MS Fram – which was fully upgraded in summer 2022 – make her exceptionally well suited for modern expedition cruising.
Purpose-built as an expedition cruise ship, MS Fram is an exceptional base camp for explorers. On board, comfort is a top priority, so after a day of exploration you can relax in a hot tub, dine in your choice of two restaurants, or at the outdoor BBQ and catch up with your fellow guests with a cocktail in hand as you watch the scenery glide past in the Explorer Lounge & Bar. In the Science Centre, at the heart of the ship, you’ll discover more about the places you sail to and listen to talks by the Expedition Team.
With key expedition features and technology, MS Fram is primed to bring you on a journey of discovery to our planet’s most alluring and unspoiled regions.
MS Fram has passed stringent safety tests and is accredited by Bureau Veritas (BV), a leading independent certification body. BV’s strict and thorough safety audit ensures the ship complies with industry and international best practices in terms of health, safety and hygiene. You can feel confident when you see the SafeGuard label, as this means your vessel met the highest standards to achieve certification. SafeGuard also entails following best practice guidelines with regard to hygiene and sanitation and limiting the spread of infectious diseases on board.
MS Fram gets you closer to nature creating an unforgettable expedition experience. The 2022 upgrade has injected a fresh Nordic look and feel across all seven decks, while exploration and learning remain front and centre. There's an expanded and improved Science Center, a larger fleet of small expedition boats for off-ship exploration, upgraded lecture areas and the ability to stream Expedition Team talks to your cabin.
Designed to bring the outside in, take in panoramic views from the revamped Explorer Lounge & Bar, gym, sauna and hot tubs. Dine al fresco at the top-deck BBQ and savour local flavours in our signature onboard restaurants. Numerous artworks commissioned from local artists based around the Arctic adorn the interior, adding an extra sense of inspiration to your voyage.
