The Costa Concordia, carrying 3,200 passengers and 1,000 crew members, turned on its side after striking rocks off the Italian island of Giglio on Jan. 13, 2012. See the astonishing images of the Costa Concordia and learn more about the ship.
The ship weighed in at more than 114,000 gross tonnage and measured 951 feet in length. A 160-foot (50-meter) gash in the hull sent water rushing into the vessel. It is owned by Genoa-based Costa Cruises and was christened in 2006, at which point the ship was believed to be the largest cruise ship flying the Italian flag.
