MS Fram’s on board emphasis is placed wholeheartedly on relaxation and cultural enrichment.

MS Fram does feature occasional musical entertainment but most of all MS Fram lets mother nature take centre stage.
In the main restaurant of Imaq (an Inuit word for sea) on deck 4, you can enjoy the finest cuisine from pan-fried Arctic char to roasted chicken. Imaq is located aft of the ship, and on your way, you’ll walk through an exhibition of original artefacts from the historic expeditions of Amundsen and Nansen. Once inside the restaurant you notice that the floor has different levels, and there are always views to the outdoors and a balcony for taking pictures when wildlife show up during a meal. Elsewhere the Bistro is self-service providing guests with free tea, coffee and cakes, with additional items on the menu available for a small fee.
MS Fram offers a unique and inspiring cruising experience, taking her passengers to some of the world’s most remote and visually stunning locations, providing guests with the opportunity for a voyage of a lifetime.
