Watch the ever changing landscape and wildlife from the observation lounge and bar, a large sitting area with vast panoramic windows and an installed pair of binoculars for zooming in on the details. The expansive views continue into mealtimes – all seating in the restaurant looks out to the surroundings – and your workout, with a fitness suite with panoramic ocean views. Further opportunities to relax come in the form of the sauna and hot tubs, while an exhibition hallway adds to the onboard learning experience.
As part of the total upgrade ahead of the 2020 season, the MS Fram also now presents guests with a high-tech Science Centre. Meet and mingle with staff and fellow travellers as you deepen your discovery of the Arctic region with a range of science equipment and interactive features.
