We bought a limited edition Nechita and several other pieces including a Dali. We had them valued at Bonhams and several other auctioeers and they laughed us out of the place. They might seem like a bargain on board but try selling them then you will find out their true value.

Some people love them, others go for the free drinks but I think that the majority of us consider them to be a waste of space, invasive and not worth a second thought. What is certain is that they have become very popular with the Cruise Lines and somebody is making a whole haep of money from them. I wonder who?....Neil.

Rubbish over valued art with free flowing champers to get the crowds in. Don't waste your time or money.

They are not really an auction as no one seems to ever bid against one another. However, some works are in fact cheaper than high street galleries, so for the art educated, there are some good deals to be had. BUT...be wary of the auction and delivery fees, which can pump the price back up to high street pricing. In other words, do your research before you board and you will do okay. I bought a limited edition Nechita on the Queen Mary 2 for over $1000 less than I could find anywhere onshore. So I dont fully agree with the "rubbish" or the "over valued" comments, as if you go in with your eyes open you can actually grab the odd bargain.
