MS Fram

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.

The ship is designed for polar exploration, with advanced technology and environmentally-friendly features. She is equipped with cutting-edge navigation and safety systems, and her design allows her to sail through the most remote and challenging waters in the world.

On board, guests can enjoy comfortable and well-appointed cabins, several restaurants, a fitness center, and a range of other amenities designed to enhance their expedition experience. The ship also features a science center where guests can learn about the destinations they are visiting, and a panoramic lounge where they can take in the stunning views.

With a capacity of up to 318 guests, the MS Fram offers an intimate and immersive way to explore the Arctic and Antarctic regions, as well as other remote and pristine destinations around the world.

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.
