Even the nicest trip has to end at some time! This morning we waved good-bye to our passengers that have accompanied the MV FRAM to the furthest South she has ever been!

In the afternoon, we welcomed our new 226 passengers, this time from 19 different countries. Many of them came home to “their” ship, on which they have traveled already some time before, either in the Arctic or in Antarcica. After having set sail heading into the Beagle Channel, Captain Steinar Hansen invited everybody into the observation lounge to welcome everybody on board. A new exciting voyage with the aim to reach Marguerite Bay has begun!
