Art Auctioneer Makes Cruise Art Auctions Fun

Park West is proud to offer a diverse collection of artwork in the Park West galleries onboard various cruise ships. The next time you find yourself cruising with Park West at sea, be sure to check out the cruise art auctions. And don’t forget to tell us all about your experience when you get back!

Hello Park West Gallery,

My fiancée and I along with my parents recently went to 3 Park West auctions held on board the Carnival Glory during a 7 day cruise of the Caribbean. I had been to a Park West auction on a cruise last year but did not intend on bidding. This time around, I was determined to attend and bid and buy.

I want to congratulate Park West for having such a wonderful collection of art as well as such wonderful staff. The Park West staff on the Glory was extremely knowledgeable, personable and informative.

The auctioneer, Martin, was a joy to work with and provided information about every piece on the block. Martin's assistants, Roxanna (his fiancée) and Cornelia were equally knowledgeable and pleasant. But it was Martin's special flair that helped me to enjoy the auctions so much more. "I'm just sayin!" That was Martin's trademark saying during the auctions. "Trust me!"

Because of Martin, my fiancée and I purchased an Alexander Chen, 3 Emile Bellet pieces, and we collected a few free pieces (Krasnyansky) thanks to raffles. My parents purchased a Thomas Kinkade, a Scott Jacobs piece, a set by Schaefer & Miles and a Max! Yes a Peter Max. I am so jealous of them. And it's all because of Martin.

Thanks again Martin, Roxanna, Cornelia and Park West.

  1. Hi Park West,

    My wife and I just got married recently, and we were actually on our honeymoon, when I went to Park West auctions held on board the Carnival Destiny during a 4 day cruise to Cozumel,Mexico. It was my 1st time to an auction but I did not intend on bidding on anything "just looking", but I really had fun at the Park West Auction, in fact so much fun that I won a "free painting by Marcus Glenn", for me and my wife, that was one of the best wedding gifts ever, thank you Park West for such a beautiful life long memory.
