I wondered if anyone who's been on a Fram sailing could answer a couple of questions.
Is the fitness center big enough/equipped enough to bother taking workout clothes or is it like one in a typical hotel which is usually not worth it? And do you think there's enough "free" time that you'd be inclined to use the gym rather than spend every moment observing what's going on outside the ship?
Also, did anyone take any of the optional tours pre or post in Ushuaia? Or the tango show/dinner in BA at the end of the tour?
It will depend on flight times but the paperwork I got makes it seem that we'll possible have 5 hrs or more in Ushuaia both coming and going. Would the National Park or Escondido Lake BBQ be worth thinking about or should we just walk around Ushuaia on our own?
I've read prior passengers reports of buying wine in Ushuaia and and having it in their cabin but the handbook I just rec'd from Hurtigruten says it's against Norwegian law to consume alcohol purchased ashore on the ship and if we buy any it will be stored & returned to us upon disembarkation. I wonder if that's a new policy or if they don't enforce it - anyone been on a recent sailing and know?
Thanks in advance -
