The Costa Concordia was launched in 2005, and it was the largest cruise ship 290 metres long with a passenger capacity of 3,780. The Concordia was known for its luxuries: four swimming pools, a casino, top Michelin stars Chef, largest spa on a ship, etc. On 13 January 2012, the cruise ship Costa Concordia with 4,232 people onboard (1,023 crew members and 3,206 passengers) ran aground off Isola Del Giglio kicking off the largest maritime salvage rescue operation in the world. On 17 September 2013, Costa Concordia was brought to a vertical position through a parbuckling procedure. On 23 July 2014, the ship was fully re-floated and commenced its final journey under tow to the Italian scraping yard in Genova. On 7 July 2017, the ship was fully dismantled and scrapped.
