As cross-references are pointing to paragraphs (or elements in Structured 
FM), unfortunately there is no option to have the cross-reference point to 
the figure / anchored frame itself.

Possible fixes do require manual work. Other than the option which you 
mentioned (having the figure title above the anchored frame), hypertext 
markers can be added, defining the links (so the cross-reference is 
responsible for the text retrieved, and a hypertext marker (following or 
preceding the cross-reference) defines the link.
(see example at http://www.microtype.com/showcase/FigLinks.pdf ; the 
cross-ref is still clickable, even though not visually indicated as a link)

[ PDF links pointing to the specific paragraph are generally recommended, 
but for use in special cases: a function in my FrameMaker-to-Acrobat 
TimeSavers add-on optionally sets *all* links/bookmarks to "Fit Page" 
instead of "Inherit zoom" (TimeSavers > Links/General > Advanced: Set 
destinations to "Fit Page"). No change is necessary in source FM files., 
all links are affected, not just those pointing to figures ]
