When it comes to planning a vacation, not all trips are created equal. Here are seven reasons cruises are the best choice to fit the most fun into your next holiday:

1. Relax While You Travel

Instead of long drives or plane rides to reach your destination, cruises enable you to relax and enjoy while getting where you want to go. When you’re vacationing on a cruise ship, you have the freedom to eat, drink and enjoy the trip to your port of call!

2. Squeeze the Most Adventure into Your Trip

A typical sunny vacation means one stop in a destination location. But why visit one city when you can visit four! Cruises fit the most locations into your trip with multiple port stops in different cities and countries!

3. Easier Planning = More Vacationing!

Have you ever needed a vacation from your vacation? When you take a cruise, the vacation comes to you! Cruises are packed with a variety of activities and possible excursions, leaving the stressful planning at home.

4. Enjoy Onboard Activities

You’re never stranded at sea with the endless amount of entertainment on board. From comedy shows, late night theater and scavenger hunts to spa days, swimming pools and, of course, Park West art auctions, there’s never a shortage of activities to do on your cruise.

5. Great for the Whole Family

Cruises are known for their engaging kids’ clubs and daytime activities. Parents can enjoy a restful day in the pool while children embrace their own adventures! Whether it’s snorkeling and exploring or just relaxing, there’s something for everyone during a cruise vacation.

6.  Meet New Friends!

No one is a tourist on a cruise — because everyone’s a tourist! It’s easy to meet new people during cruise activities and meals or chat with fellow art lovers at Park West events.

7. Make the Best Memories

Cruises are a great vacation for a family who wants to spend time together, a group of friends who want to get away or a couple who needs a few days or relaxation. Being away at sea puts the rest of the world into perspective, helping you come home refreshed and ready to start planning your next vacation.

Beat the winter blues and start planning your next cruise alongside Park West!

    wondering if any VIP cruises scheduled for 2017….might be interested….really enjoyed my last one with you in May 2016

  2. George Trench says:

    Been on 2 Princess cruises. Cant say enough about the experience with Park West. 20 approx purchases to date and love them all. Ive come accross an artist that I would just love to buy from as Im positive many other people would think the same. Please check him out and I know you will not be disappointed. If I thought his work was shown on any cruises I would travel anywhere to buy from Park West.

    What happened to NCL?

  4. Linda Stary says:

    I was wondering about VIP cruises also. Will there be any in 2017?

  5. Garry says:

    park west’s presence o/b a cruise ship opens up a window into the present day art world in a very subtle and professional way!

  6. Nancy Whitehead says:

    Please consider my husband and I for a VIP cruise this year. We loved the one we did a few years ago and we are ready a
    to go.

  7. Luis A. García-Ramos P. says:

    I have to say that in MSC and Costa you are not on-board. So to me is like a truce because when I discover you in other Cruise companies vessels, the temptation to buy from your Galleries is absolutely irresistible and now I am experiencing severe space problems so I would be forced to move to a much larger apartment to fit the beautiful artworks of your associated artists.

  8. Steve Foor says:

    Just finished a Carnival Magic cruise! Learned alot about art on our cruise and even bought 4 pieces. Andre, Marisha, Melissa, Tamara, and Ivan were awesome!! Can’t wait to cruise with then again. First class outfit.
