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.

Jonathan H."Park West has an incredible training curriculum that is on a world class level. I have worked for the company for a number of years now and each time I return for training I always leave with such valuable insight and lessons in the art world. Park West, in my opinion, is not only one of the top art galleries in the world, but also one of the best companies to be employed by."
Tanya B."Since I’ve started with Park West I have become a better and more well-rounded individual. It has given me confidence and I feel like a new person. The level of training is unparalleled to any other company that not only feeds your mind but also grows your confidence."
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."
Martin & Roxana B."In all the years we have been involved with Park West, we have come to one very important conclusion: people are never really bothered about the cost of art, they are more inclined to say no because they feel intimidated by the whole experience and their lack of knowledge. A truly amazing experience, besides seeing the world for free, is meeting world-class artists that we would never have had the opportunity to meet otherwise. There is just something to be said for presenting a stunning painting by Anatole Krasnyansky and then suddenly he walks into the room to say hello! Or, presenting Csaba Markus as he walks in out of the blue to sit next to an unsuspecting collector and says, “Hi!” These are experiences that collectors will always remember when enjoying their acquisitions in the comfort of their own home. Imagine the stories that will be passed on to future generations!"
Chris V."The Park West training experience is exceptional, with up to date sales and art education of the highest standard and industry leading professionals. The friendships that ware made last a lifetime. I would highly recommend this to any person looking to take it to a new level."
