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.
