Polar Tracks Expeditions

About the Ship

Purpose-built as an expedition cruise ship, MS Fram is a much-beloved polar vessel. On board, comfort is a top priority, so after a day of exploration you can relax in a hot tub, dine in your choice of two restaurants or at the outdoor BBQ and catch up with your fellow guests in the Explorer Lounge & Bar. 

The 2022 upgrade has injected a fresh Nordic look and feel across all seven decks, while exploration and learning remain front and centre. There’s an expanded and improved Science Center, upgraded lecture areas and the ability to stream Expedition Team talks to your cabin.

Why We Like Fram


    Named after the legendary Arctic vessel which was famously frozen into the sea ice near the North Pole in 1893, an exploration of polar history is a key focal point of Fram's educational program.


    Every voyage offers children's programming, where some departures run a Young Explorers program designed for children to get a taste & feel of what it's like to be a polar guide.


    With a newly refurbished and expanded Science Centre, research is at the core of the educational program, with opportunities for guests to participate in a variety of citizen science projects.


    Nordic through and through with stylish cabin decor, thoughtfully-designed public spaces, and sophisticated restaurants with maps and books around every corner.
