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.

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!"
Rae-Anne F."Park West has not only provided me with an experience that was once in a lifetime, but has provided me with memories that I will continue to cherish for the rest of my life. It has enabled me to combine my passion for art into a career, with numerous possibilities and room for personal growth. The possibilities are endless and each day is a journey, taken alongside friends for life. I am grateful to Park West for this opportunity and experience and look forward to the future with this wonderful company."
Ntando M."Fantastic and challenging experience that helps develop your persona and outlook on life. Recommended for anyone who wants to upgrade their personality."
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!"
Dylan B."This job is an exciting opportunity to further your skills in all aspects. If you are looking for entrepreneurial experience, and how to manage and run a business effectively, this would be a great way to do it."
