MS Fram


  • Expert team of expedition staff and lecturers
  • Two on deck heated Jacuzzis
  • Gym and sauna
  • Lift connecting all passenger floors
  • Cabins dedicated for single occupancy

The MS Fram is a purpose built 11,600- ton vessel that incorporates all the best of both practical and traditional design. Her 127 cabins carry passengers to the most remote locations on Earth in comfort and style. Because the ship is slightly larger than other expedition ships, it offers more in the way of on-board facilities and comfort.

The decor on board includes original artwork and superbly appointed interiors that have been inspired by the Arctic and Greenland regions. Facilities include a main reception area, a glass-enclosed observation salon and excellent leisure facilities, including gym, sauna and heated outdoor Jacuzzis.

One of the highlights is the panoramic observation lounge, which has ample space for passengers who want to soak in the views and spot wildlife from the comfort of the ship.

There is a range of cabins from comfortable standard cabins to luxury expansive suites with their own lounge areas, catering for all types of travellers. Whilst sailing longer distances, educational activities are available to join to stay entertained, such as lectures, documentary screenings and story-telling.

Each exciting Antarctic expedition is complemented by a group of experts to accompany landings, wildlife spotting and answer questions. Every adventure is an educational one! There is also an on-board photographer to document each expedition and help passengers capture those perfect wildlife and landscape photos.

Expedition staff on the MS Fram are experienced and helpful and the atmosphere on board is decidedly social so it’s an excellent choice for those who want an immersive experience with a friendly atmosphere.
