Housekeeping is the new Fram Olympic Champion

Another barbeque outside on deck 7. Every day for the last week we have been eating a bit more than normal under the excuse of this being the last barbeque. But the next day the weather has been good again –and we have been able to use the same excuse:-)

For the Fram Olympic Games final there was no more running, jumping, pushing, eating and throwing like it has been in the previous round of the games. Now it was time for mind games, safety questions and Fram quiz. Do you know the full name of Captain Hansen and Hotel Manager “Miss Else”, and where and when Fram was baptized?

Before the final, team Leftover with the ship management was leading. But in the final Housekeeping proved they had the strongest minds and won the Fram Olympic Games. Deck Department was only one tiny point behind on 2nd place. And team Leftovers ended up with 3rd place.

Housekeeping is now challenging passengers to compete with us on the next crossings. As said earlier on the blog we are inviting passengers to join us for this work and fun. Of course the work is voluntary and it is also a nice opportunity for a relaxing holiday, just to enjoy the time at sea. You can choose the short re-positioning cruise from Spitsbergen to Reykjavik, 4 days from July 12th to July 16th 2010. Or you can join the long one from Halifax to Buenos Aires, 23 days from October 9th to November 1st. And Fram will also do this cruise from Buenos Aires to Lisbon again in 2011.
