The Mexican Embassy in Ireland is pleased to inform that the “Cuauhtémoc” School Ship will visit the port of Dublin again from September 5 to 10, within the framework of its instructional cruise called “Northern Europe 2019” that contemplates visiting 15 ports in 10 countries (Canada, United Kingdom, France, Netherlands, Denmark, Norway, Germany, Ireland, Spain and Colombia).
This will be the fifth time that the “Ambassador and Knight of the Seas” arrives in Ireland. The previous visits took place in 1998, 2008, 2012 and 2015.
The Cuauhtémoc School Ship was built in the Shipyards and Workshops of Celaya, in Bilbao, Spain and since 1982 it has sailed the oceans and seas of the world, forming more than thirty generations of Captains, Officers, Cadets and Classes and Mariners, both Mexicans as of other nationalities.
