Costa Concordia Luxury cruise ship before and after runs aground off Italian coast

Costa Concordia is one of the large cruise ships built last few years
The company operating with this beautiful vessel is Costa Cruises, Italian Cruising Company operating worldwide and offering some of the greatest cruises. Really, if you visited this ship you would be amazed about the comfort, which is offer. Costa Concordia was launched in 2005 in Genoa from the famous ship-yard Fincantieri’s Sestri Ponente and this is the largest Italian cruise ship, which is ever built. The deadweight of the beautiful cruise ship was 114,500 metric tons and the capacity of Costa Concordia is 3,700 passengers. These facts are really proving the fact about the majesty of this vessel. The overall length of Costa Concordia is 250 meters, which is equals to 950 feet and the beam of the ship is 36 meters, or is another dimension 118 feet. The vessel was really offering large and spaceful public places, where all guests can celebrate their journey on board. The luxury on board was really amazing. The crew was about 1,100 members

With the greatest regret the cruise ship sank after an accident with collision with a reef close to the Italian riviera. The cruise ship sank on 400 meters off shore from the Giglio Island. Over 70 persons were still missing in the first hours of the disaster.

The company operating a cruise ship said the captain may have committed errors
He appears to have sailed too close to land and not to have followed the company's emergency procedures, Costa Crociere said in a statement
Capt Francesco Schettino is suspected of manslaughter, but denies wrongdoing
At least six people have died but about 15 remain unaccounted for
Divers are trying to find more survivors

  1. I was just looking for this info for some time. After six hours of continuous Googleing, at last I got it in your site. I wonder what is the lack of Google strategy that do not rank this type of informative web sites in top of the list. Normally the top web sites are full of garbage.
