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.

David G."One of my most memorable Park West experiences was at the 2012 Auctioneer Conference. Tim Yanke, a celebrated contemporary artist with Park West Gallery, brought some of his newest works to the event to get our honest feedback. We discussed the meaning behind the works and his creative approach. Everyone loved them and someone had the wild idea of auctioning these works off to the crowd. Minutes later, after a warm welcome from fellow auctioneer, Hannah Meyer, the microphone was in my hand. I conducted an auction in front of all of my peers, Park West’s founder, Albert Scaglione, and dozens of world class artists. Leslie Lew and Marcus Glenn held the works up as I auctioned them off. We raised approximately $10,000 for under privileged kids that evening. The memory of that auction will stay with me for the rest of my life."
