Celebrity Cruises and Park West Gallery Return to Sea with Celebrity Apex’s First Voyage
“It was hands down the most elegant cruising experience I have ever had,” said Jordan sitter, West Park Senior auctioneer for Apex sail. “Almost all of the guests said it was the best cruise they have ever taken. The fact that this whole trip went so well is a huge testament to Celebrity Cruises and proves that the cruise industry is officially on. return!”
The entire crew of the Celebrity Apex has been vaccinated against COVID-19 and at least 95% of passengers have also been vaccinated. The ship applied rigorous safety protocols and, on the last day of the cruise, not a single crew member or passenger had tested positive for COVID-19. Throughout the navigation, passengers had the chance to enjoy the idyllic Greek landscape and visit Rhodes, Mykonos, Santorini and Limassol.
West Park Gallery took 130 VIP collectors on the luxurious journey, hosting shore excursions, fine dining and their live art auctions. The collectors were joined by three great contemporary artists: Mark Kostabi, Orlando quevedo, and Viktor Chvaïko. Surprisingly, all three artists broke their career best auction records in live auctions on Celebrity Apex.
“We were completely stunned by the enthusiasm of our collectors to get back on board a cruise ship,” said Albert Scaglione, Park West Gallery Founder and CEO. “They wanted to collect art, see old friends and enjoy the cruise experience again. We look forward to getting back on more ships and sharing our art with even more passengers around the world.”
West Park Gallery is expected to return to multiple cruise lines throughout 2021 and 2022, bringing its cruise ship galleries and live auctions back to sea travelers around the world.
