Diane & Bill Caldbeck

Join Drake University hosts Diane (Anagnos) Caldbeck, Associate VP, University Advancement, ED’72, and Bill Caldbeck, BN’70 on their annual cruise with fellow alumni and friends—twelve nights sailing from Jerusalem to Istanbul. Seven years running, this tradition celebrates Drake’s “True Blue” relationships and promises wonderful memories with friends, old and new.

Join fellow alumni and experience the camaraderie of exploring the world with like-minded travelers. Each Go Next trip has been thoughtfully selected with you and your alma mater in mind. We take care of the details, so you can relax and enjoy the company of your fellow alumni.

Because of the exceptional value and limited space, we encourage you to make your reservation as soon as possible.
