Our art teams must strive for excellence and work hard, but in return, they are encouraged to enjoy the unique amenities working aboard a cruise ship has to offer. Our teams are welcome to attend the top-notch Broadway-style shows, live music or performances from stand-up comedians; to enjoy the ship’s bars and nightclubs, including “staff only” lounges; and dine in the multitude of passenger and staff restaurants.
All meals and accommodations on board are provided. Our Associates and Gallery Directors share a cabin with one other person, typically another Park West team member of the same gender, while Auctioneers have their own cabin. Depending on the assigned ship, Associate Auctioneers, Gallery Directors and Principal Auctioneers may have a guest, staff or crew cabin.
Principal Auctioneers are placed in a single cabin, which may be shared by a couple if the Principal Auctioneer wishes to travel with a spouse or partner. Associate Auctioneers and Gallery Directors share a cabin with one other person, typically someone of the same gender from the onboard art team. Cabin space is available for Principal or Associate Auctioneer couples if necessary.

Tianna P."I traveled from Canada to the Park West training and I couldn’t be more happy about my decision. The skills I have learned over the course have been extensive and transferable to all aspects of life. I am eager to start my career and take in as much as I can. I would recommend this program to anyone who is driven and looking for adventure."
Claudie T."At Park West Gallery I don't just feel like an employee, I feel like I am part of an art family that is changing the way people collect art forever. I have never worked this hard, but it has been the most exciting, rewarding, and fun 5 years of my life."
Kristin L."This training will push and challenge you in so many ways. You'll learn to be a better public speaker, better salesperson, and a better human being overall. Not to mention the incredible artwork you'll be surrounded with, and the people you'll meet from all over the world. Hands down the best training I've attended."
Ntando M."Fantastic and challenging experience that helps develop your persona and outlook on life. Recommended for anyone who wants to upgrade their personality."
Ethan P."Having worked in many fields in the past, this is by far the most fulfilling. It gives me the ability to work with amazing people from around the world as well as make VERY good money while doing it. For the first time in my life, I made more money than my father who is a director at one of the largest companies in the world. Doing that before the age of 30 was a big deal. This contract I will have paid off 4 years of tuition from a private university in 3 months, and have enough left over to buy a nice car, go on a nice vacation, and do whatever else I want."
Alexander H."My experience with Park West has truly been a life-defining experience. The skill set I have gathered from training and on ships has been invaluable to my development. In the meanwhile, I have travelled the world and have friends on every continent. It has broadened my horizons in ways I didn't know possible. Thanks Park West Gallery!"
