MS Fram

About MS Fram

In service since 2007, MS Fram is a purpose-built expedition ship with capacity for 318 guests. Equipped with everything you need to get the most out your time in the Arctic or Antarctica, MS Fram is great choice for those seeking immersive experiences in the Polar Regions.

Close quarters exploration is at the heart of any voyage aboard MS Fram. As such, she is equipped with a fleet of Zodiacs which are deployed almost daily, weather permitting. She also carries a number of kayaks as well as an assortment of necessary hiking equipment. Each time you step off MS Fram you will be joined by the ship’s expert Expedition Team. Selected due to their passion for exploration and their unsurpassed knowledge in the fields of geography, history and wildlife, they will be on-hand to ensure you get the most out of every excursion.

In terms of onboard comforts, MS Fram has four categories of accommodation; Arctic Insides, Arctic Outsides, Arctic Superiors and Expedition Suites. The ‘Arctic’ categories are smaller and consist of separate beds, a sofa (which can be transformed as a spare bed should it be required) and private bathroom facilities. The Arctic Superiors are more spacious and have a large picture window while the Expedition Suites boast separate seating areas and come with a generous ‘cabin kit’ which includes a bathrobe, slippers and other amenities.

Where dining is concerned, there is one main restaurant onboard MS Fram. Called ‘Imaq’ and blessed with some truly glorious views courtesy of the large, well-positioned windows, it boasts a wonderful atmosphere during meal times. Breakfast and lunch are both self-service buffet affairs with choices ranging from cold meats and cheeses to fresh breads, pastries, pastas and assorted salads and fruits. Dinner is generally served at your table, though it is not uncommon for at least one evening meal to be also be buffet style during longer expeditions.

The ship also has a self-service snack bar available throughout the day. Located near to the main reception, here you can pick up light bits such as biscuits, cookies and crisps or help yourself to tea or coffee.

Other facilities on MS Fram include an observation lounge/bar area, a gym and even an outdoor jacuzzi.
