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.

Rose G."Working for Park West this past year has been the adventure of a lifetime. Meeting people from around the world, sharing art knowledge and making memories with people I never would have met before has been such an eye opening and exciting experience. The challenging, fast paced, exhilarating life on board is almost addictive and I have enjoyed every second of it."
Deon & Jeanne M."Being 27 years old, thinking we knew business and the science of selling, we were pleasantly shocked out of our comfort zones with the initial training Park West provided. The training in Miami exceeded all expectations and thoroughly excited us to become the best we can be – so much so that we became financially secure in only six months with the skills passed onto us. Even if we ended up not being given this job, the training provided would still justify the long flight to USA, as one of the biggest skills taught at training is social grace, which is of utmost importance in today’s modern business environment."
