When taking a cruise aboard the Carnival Sensation, travelers were treated to an amazing opportunity. Not only was this opportunity fun and exciting, it made it possible for travelers to see some of the finest works of art. Those who chose to partake in the Park West Gallery auctions while cruising had access to some of the hottest new artists and some classic ones too. These auctions were hosted while at sea and offered something unique for cruise enthusiasts to enjoy. It was definitely not something everyone would have access to enjoy back home. Especially if there is a lack of art galleries in their area.
The first night of the three-day cruise aboard the Carnival Sensation, travelers were greeted by those who worked in the gallery. It was impressive just how pleasant and knowledgeable they were. This is when cruise guests were told about their auctions to be held the next two days of the cruise. Many cruise goers could not wait to be a part of what sounded to be a lot of fun.
During the three-day cruise, there are two opportunities to enjoy an art auction. The first one was on the morning before docking in the Bahamas and the second was in the afternoon of the Day-at-Sea. During these auctions guests are treated to a glass of champagne and works of art by artists such as Peter Max, Yaccov Agam, Jean-Cleaude Carsuzan, Maya Green, Guy Harvey and Thomas Kinkade. The auctions were lively, fun and very exciting.
Tip: When attending an auction, make sure to cheer on the auctioneer, smile and have a lot of fun. You might just win something special.
Everyone who attended the actions received a small print that can easily be framed. Though it is not a large, one-of-a-kind print, these prints are still amazing and look good when hung up on the wall at home. Those who purchase works of art from the auction have the option to have them professionally framed before shipping. Though this is not required of all purchases, it is a good idea to have it done at this time. Otherwise it could cost a lot more to have it framed once it is delivered to you at home.
If you have plans to enjoy a Carnival Cruise, make sure to look into their art auctions by Park West Gallery. The Gallery’s mission is to “create an entertaining, educations and welcoming environment that ignites a passion for the arts and offers an incomparable collecting experience.” You are sure to see the difference when you attend a Park West Gallery Auction. Including those available on the Carnival Cruise Ships.
