MS Fram

Named after the ship used by famous Norwegian Explorer Fridtjof Nansen, MS Fram's interior has been inspired by Greenland and the Arctic region.

MS Fram has a glass-enclosed observation lounge and excellent leisure facilities including a gym, sauna and two heated outdoor Jacuzzis. Ms Fram is a purpose built 12,700-ton vessel that incorporates all the best of both practical and traditional design. As with all of Hurtigruten’s vessels, the decor includes original artwork and superbly appointed interiors that have been inspired by the Arctic and Greenland regions, with a main reception area, a glass-enclosed observation salon and excellent leisure facilities, including gym, sauna and heated Jacuzzis.

Items of the original Fram are also be displayed throughout the vessel, linking the present MS Fram with the rich history of its illustrious past.


There are various types of accommodation options available aboard MS Fram, including Expedition Suites, Grand Suites, Arctic Superior Cabins, Polar Inside Cabins and Polar Outside Cabins.

Expedition Suite includes:

  • Seating area
  • Double bed
  • TV
  • Bathrobe & slippers
  • Vanity area
  • Balcony

Other grades (inside/outside cabins) amenities vary


One of the great things about a Hurtigruten cruise is the opportunity to explore and learn about your chosen sailing in depth and as Hurtigruten themselves claim ‘Mother Nature provides the entertainment’. As such, your time onboard will be more about relaxing and enjoying the views rather than dancing the night away to the early hours. However, certain voyages will include onboard lectures and conferences.
