4.0 / 5.0
Editor Rating

This was our fist landing Petermann Island (I think) saw Gentoo penguins for the first time, so friendly.
Towel origami in the cabin to bring a big smile to our faces!
On an expedition landing above Orne Harbour to visit a chinstrap penguin colony. We could see humpback whales in the bay below!
Vegan menu is excellent. Our needs were met for every meal.

I don't know where to start, I will just say this is the most amazing experience I have had in my life. The staff were knowledgeable, helpful and enthusiastic. The excursions were superb...except for the camping, I don't like camping normally but thought this would be different but the tents were small, noisy and our sleeping bag zip was stuck and camp loo was not awesome. If I didn't have to part ...

Long wanting to travel to the Antarctic and with previous experience of Hurtigruten- it was a no-brainer! Staff were fantastic and very genuine. All seemed committed to ensuring our maximum safety and enjoyment. Even the engineering staff (who we rarely saw) were friendly and often remembered our names! Food onboard was fantastic and with wine and beer included what’s not to ...

We had wanted to go to Antarctica for years and after 42 years of childcare (our own 5 boys plus 59 foster childre), it was time to celebrate and just be the two of us! The cruise was a fantastic treat in every way. It was a huge adventure each day, exploring new places we had only dreamed about. The food was outstanding and varied, especially considering we were in the Antarctic! The ...

6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

Fram 23 day cruise offered the opportunity for expeditions on the Antarctica Continent, South Georgia and the Falklands including the Chilean Fiords. This hit everything we wanted to see. However, due to having active Covid cases on board during our cruise, which was quickly quarantined and maintained, we were unable to go to the Falkland islands as they did not consider us a green ship at the ...

A life changing experience on an excellent ship

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

I have used Hurtigruten once before about 10 years ago (classic passage North) and enjoyed it. I chose this trip on the Fram based on that experience, reputation and price - but primarily the itinerary, which gave more time on South Georgia. Getting to Ushuaia and back was a bit of a faff, using their chartered LATAM aircraft, but it is hard to see a viable alternative. Once on the ship, I ...

Cruise to very remote areas in a very comfortable way. Everything well arranged and problemfree. Dedicated expedition team, not only competent, but also pushing strongly to give its guest the best experience. Trip of a lifetime. Quite large cabin with double bed and WC/shower. Clean and maintained twice a day. Internet Connection available at extra charge. Worked OK even in very remote areas. ...

Hurtigruten Ultimate Antarctica Expedition with South Georgia and the Falklands

Antarctica/South Georgia was number one on my travel wish list (having recently checked off #'s 2 and 3... gorilla trekking and Papua New Guinea). I had been looking for more than a decade for an Antarctica cruise and found a great deal for this cruise a couple of months before departure. It was truly the trip of a lifetime (which is saying a great deal considering I've visited over 100 countries, ...

Visits to wildlife in Falklands, South Georgia, South Orkneys, South Shetlands and Antarctic Peninsula. Also history of these places. Tremendous experiences of penguins, seals, whales, birds and some flora. Magnificent geographical scenery with mountains, glaciers and all the features one would expect of cold climates. Onboard service is excellent with wide range of buffet and set menu food ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

We were so pleased that we had chosen a small ship, since the rules in Antarctica are strict about no more than 100 people on shore at any one time. This was adhered to perfectly by our expedition team and we were most impressed. Because there were just less than 200 of us on board Fram, we were all able to go ashore twice most days, and that was fabulous. The team were very diligent in ensuring ...

Booked on our own flights to and from UK and three days prior to and after the cruise package in Buenos Aries. Time to explore a city we had not visited previously. The cruise package started and finished with charter flights between Buenos Aries and Ushuaia. Booked extras via Hurtigruten - Buenos Aries City tour before and Tango Show/meal and trip to Tigre after the cruise. All were excellent ...
