Review of MS Fram

Launched in 2007, ms Fram is a specially designed for Antarctica expedition voyages ship, part of the Hurtigruten fleet, with “1B” ice class double hull. The name of the ship means “forward” in Norwegian. Fram was named after her wooden namesake used between 1893-1912 by Norwegian North Pole explorers R.Amundsen, F. Nansen, O. Wisting, and O. Sverdrup. The original Fram is preserved at “Fram Museum” in Oslo.

History - construction & ownership

Hurtigruten (translated as "Express Route") is a daily freight and passenger shipping service along Norway's northern and western coast between Bergen and Kirkenes. Often referred to as "Norwegian Coastal Express", the ships of the line sail nearly the entire length of the country and complete their round-trip journey in 11 days. The cruise has been described as "World's Most Beautiful Sea Voyage," and features highlights including the Lofoten Islands, the Hanseatic League city of Bergen and the Geiranger fjord. Hurtigruten has around 2% of the worldwide cruise market.

The 11,647-ton, 318-passenger cruise ship ms Fram was built in 2007 to sail in Antarctica. The Hurtigruten's expedition ship offers adventures in a more safe and comfortable way. With this addition to its fleet, the cruise line presented an option for both relaxation and discovery. Specially designed for cruising in polar waters, Fram holds the highest safety standards. She is the perfect size for guests’ comfort and optimum nautical maneuverability. Boarding ms Fram will take passengers closer to nature and wildlife. 

December 2007, ms Fram lost power and hit a glacier in Antarctica. The vessel was damaged to her starboard side but despite the accident was able to continue the voyage.

Cruise itinerary program

MS Fram itinerary program is based on Greenland and Arctic cruises during summer in the northern hemisphere, and roundtrip Antarctica voyages during winter months, leaving from Argentina.

The serving area is situated in the center of the restaurant in a square formation. It's seldom crowded as meals are spread out over a couple of hours. Some dinners are open seating self-service buffets, while others are plated meals served in one or two seatings, depending on how full the cruise ship is.

  • Fram cruise ship is an expedition vessel built exclusively to operate in the regions of Arctic (Europe) and Antarctica (South America). The ship is named after the Norwegian explorer Fridtjof Nansen's "Fram" ship. The original Fram was a wooden expedition ship (rigged as 3-masted schooner), which design's most unique feature was that the hull (bow, stern, keel) was rounded off and smoothed, to avoid ice packing around it.
  • Fram ship's onboard experience is marked by an interior design rich in oak wood, leather and wool. The observation lounge offers panoramic 270-degree sea views. On its Sun deck 7, located by the gym room are 2 outdoor whirlpools enclosed by glass windows. They are the Hurtigruten's exclusive option to enjoy the panoramic spa experience at sea - no matter the weather.
  • Fram's cabins as sizes vary: from 180 to 420 ft2 (Suites), from 118 to 140 ft2 (Oceanviews) and from 118 to 140 ft2 (Interior staterooms). Two of the staterooms are designed for disabled passengers. By nationality, the ship's officers are all Norwegian, while the hotel staff and crew are Filipino.
  • MS Fram cruises to Antarctic leaving from Argentina (roundtrip Buenos Aires) during winter, and to Greenland in the summer.
  • On Hurtigruten Norwegian coastal voayges, the line offers flight-cruise package deals. Bookings are protected with ATOL Certificate. ATOL stands for "Air Travel Organisers' Licensing" (Civil Aviation Authority, UK).
