MS Fram takes her name from the wooden ship sailed by several Norwegian polar explorers, including Roald Amundsen. Built in 2007 with the aim of bringing her guests closer to nature, wildlife and unforgettable experiences, this 'Fram' uses today's advanced technology to explore the polar regions.
MS Fram is a comfortable 'expedition base-camp' with excellent viewing spaces. At the top of the ship there is an observation lounge featuring large panoramic windows, giving wide views of her surroundings. At the far end of the restaurant there is a quick-access balcony for grabbing photos when wildlife show up during a meal. The spacious outside decks include access to the very front of the ship.
The Fram's other features include a well-equipped fitness room with panoramic ocean view, a sauna and outdoor jacuzzis to watch icebergs float silently by.
Sturdy Polarcirkel boats take you safely from ship to shore from the Fram's expedition landing deck with its tender lobby.
The Fram has 8 decks and a capacity of 318 passengers, which places her among the largest expedition cruise ships that currently visit Antarctica.
Her 127 cabins range from comfortable outside and inside standard cabins, and superior cabins on two decks, up to exclusive 'grand' and exquisite 'expedition' suites named after Norwegian polar heroes.
