MS Fram

Hurtigruten offer a genuinely unique cruise experience. These are working ships, which deliver freight, mail and passengers to remote communities throughout the Norwegian Fjords, Greenland and Antarctica, though MS Fram offers something even more special. MS Fram was built with expedition cruises in mind, and takes her passengers to the most remote, stunning and inspiring locations on the planet.

These voyages of a lifetime offer high standards of cuisine, the menus taking advantage of fresh, seasonal ingredients, served in a relaxed, informal setting. A cafe is available on many voyages as are a selection of bars - the restaurants are also fully licensed.

The emphasis onboard is on relaxation and enrichment, and thus moves away from commercial entertainment. The aim here is to get closer to the unique environments, and to share this with fellow travellers. The Explorer voyages have lectures offered throughout the sailing.

Ship Facilities

The restaurants onboard, including the buffet and bistro, are relatively informal and fully licensed. Hurtigruten are proud of their environmental heritage and as such source locally available, fresh produce to serve onboard. Dining is normally at a set time, at a reserved table, and is a great time to discuss the day's explorations. Also featured are bars and cafes.

All meals onboard are served at the Imaq restaurant where breakfast and lunch are open-seating buffets and dinner either a buffet or plated meals.

Due to the working nature of Hurtigruten vessels, the entertainment onboard is quite different to those on regular cruise ships. Musical entertainment is featured occasionally, however the main emphasis is on relaxation and sharing experiences with fellow travellers. The experience can be enriched by attending lectures from experts in the lounge who are enthusiastic about imparting their fascinating insight into diverse topics on eager guests.

MS Fram boasts excellent leisure facilities, including a gym, sauna and two heated outdoor jacuzzis so you can enjoy the fresh air from the comfort of warm water. There is also a glass-enclosed observation lounge, sun deck, board room and onboard shop.

Customer reviews for MS Fram

Sailed to Antarctica Nov 2016. Also previously to Svalbard in 2011. Were excellent expedition voyages. Staff / expedition leaders were brilliant. All zodiac Cruising was executed professionally even though were some breakdowns on both voyages. Cabins, small and basic, especially if sharing, but clean and had everything needed. Food was good with plenty of choice.

Just returned from our second trip on the Fram went to Greenland and Iceland this time and Svalbard last time. Elxcellent arrangements of tours on all occasions excellent food and excellent staff cabins rather basic but very clean. Fully occupied at all time with lectures and excursions.
