How about an ABD on the Orient Express? That would be different.

I ran across this statement on Disney's ABD Jobs site under "Becoming an Adventure Guide... Language Ability":

"Currently we are considering the following languages when assessing suitability to lead trips in destinations where these languages are spoken: French, German, Italian, Spanish, Mandarin, Cantonese and Japanese. "

I thought it was interesting that they're seeking applicants who can speak Japanese. Possible future Japan trip? There may be nothing to it, but you never know.

Japan would be amazing! I have little experience with Japanese language/culture and ABD would take away a lot of the hassle and uncertainty.

India would also be great, as there seems to be so much land I would want to cover!

Or possibly a market for Japanese speaking travelers ?

I would love that they add a tour in French Canada : Montreal and Quebec City... that way, I could become an ABD guide!

I don't remember all of the details, and I don't know if it's still true, but a couple of years ago they had a Canadian ABD, and I was told there were issues with the Canadian government, in that the Guides had to be Canadian, and I don't think ABD had the control over their training that they wanted. That's why the trip is now half USA & half Canada (Banff area). So I don't know if they'd do Montreal & Quebec City unless there was some way to combine it with a part of the US. Although I *LOVE* Montreal, and would LOVE to see Quebec City!

With the addition of Hawaii this past April/May and what I have heard while onboard, I think going to Asia via the ship is in the works. I don't think it will be upcoming, but maybe in 2015! I would love to leave LA, stop in Hawaii and head to Japan!

DCL usually announces their bookings spread out over time (at least that seems to have been the model the last couple of years). Some more mundane itineraries were released in the fall, and then the more special/new itineraries were announced around January or so. I don't know if that is what it will be like this time, but it would give you an idea.
I am really sorry DH and I missed the Baltics cruise when it came around, if it came back we would book in a heartbeat!

I'm sure many of you have already seen this, but I thought it might spark some more conversation. I noticed they had Provence as well as Austria/Czech Rep (Prague) up there. Those would be cool. Not sure why they would combine Provence with Paris though. Paris is already pretty well represented.

I took it that they were including adventures that have also been discontinued. At one point they had the Provence/Paris ABD and Austria/Czech Republic ABD, along with Northern CA.

That would make sense. Too bad.

Japan is the one I have always hoped for as well. We'd book it immediately if offered.

We were on a river boat cruise on the Danube this past summer and I would think that ABD would be a good fit to do river cruising in Europe.
