Highlights

  • Built for polar conditions and perfectly suited for the explorer who wants to enjoy the thrill of discovery in an intimate setting.
  • The spacious outside decks include access to the very front of the ship, which is the best place to observe Antarctic wildlife.
  • The ship carries a fleet of Polarcirkel boats, known for their ease of embarkment & disembarkment and comfortable ride experience.

Named after the most famous explorer ship of its time, the Fram (pronounced frahm, which is Norwegian for “forward”) is a purpose-built upscale expedition vessel. The 7-deck vessel can carry up to 318 passengers but her capacity is limited to 200 passengers for expeditions in the Antarctic. Her facilities include two restaurants, a panoramic observation lounge, sauna, outdoor hot tubs, a well-equipped gym, a science centre and an elevator.

Life On Board

Built in 2007, the Fram polar ship was fully upgraded in summer 2022 with a fresh Nordic look showcasing blond woods. Fabric colors are rich: royal blue and brick red with calmer colors for the carpeting. Numerous commissioned artworks adorn the interior, reflecting both the Arctic and Antarctic with photos of the early expeditions, paintings of snow-capped peaks and pictures of penguins, adding an extra sense of inspiration to your Antarctic voyage. There is also an exhibition of historic Fram artifacts on loan from the Fram Museum in Oslo, Norway.

The Fram cruise ship’s 125 cabins and suites come in seven different categories, all with comfortable beds, most of which feature flexible sleeping arrangements with a double bed that can be divided into two single beds. All have a flat screen TV, mini refrigerator and private en-suite bathroom with shower. The Expedition Mini Suites aboard the Fram include sitting areas and mini bar, and for the Grand Suites you can expect a private balcony....
