View Cruise Deals

Hurtigruten offer a genuinely unique cruise experience, with MS Fram offering something even more special. Built with expedition cruises in mind, this exceptional ship takes her passengers to the most remote, stunning and inspiring locations on the planet. As well as memorable destinations, the emphasis onboard MS Fram 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, while still enjoying delicious cuisine, evenings spent unwinding and days spent exploring new places.

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.

Things to do
