10 Works of Cruise Ship Art That Will Make You Want to Go on Vacation NOW

How long has it been since your last vacation? Too long? It should be no surprise that Park West is a big fan of cruises—we host cruise ship art auctions and exhibitions all over the world.

The problem is, once a cruise vacation is over, it’s impossible to stop thinking about your next one. You’re left at home, mourning the lack of any ocean views, live entertainment, or poolside piña coladas.

Fortunately, there is something that can help you endure those long hard months until your next ocean voyage—cruise ship art.

Why cruise ship art? Because it’s the perfect way for art lovers to bring the experience of an ocean voyage home with them. Photographs can capture moments, but nothing is better at capturing emotions than art.

With a few brushstrokes, an artist can remind you of the smell of the sea air, the thrill of an island excursion, or the excitement of walking on board a cruise ship for the very first time.

These kinds of vivid sense memories can help you endure those dull periods between your vacations—otherwise known as real life—and allow you to keep a little of that vacation spirit all year round.

If you can’t wait to head back out on the high seas, take a look at 10 of our favorite works of cruise ship art and start dreaming of your next vacation.
