Today we had an unusual wake-up announcement shortly after 7 this morning. Our captain advised us about FRAM being in a hurricane, Beaufort 12. Most of us had already noticed the strong rolling during the night. Breakfast was served in plastic dishes in order to prevent breaking of glass. Despite the storm, many passengers showed up and most of them were in good mood.
For safety reasons we had to cancel all programs for today. But it was exciting to watch the waves, the lightening and the storm outside.
MV FRAM is the most modern expedition cruise vessel belonging to the Hurtigrutenfleet, roaming the polar waters and taking people to remote places where only few people go. In order to give you the chance to travel with us, even if only on your screen, we created this blog. Here you can see what we have seen and read what we have done. And - maybe - you will be onboard with us one day.
The expedition team consists of lecturers from various fields and backgrounds: ornithologists, mammalogists, historians, and geologists, ready to tackle all your questions. Together with the crew onboard we make your time on board REALLY worthwhile!
