The 114,500-tonne vessel was wrested from the rocks in September last year in a complicated 19-hour salvage operation, the largest and most expensive of its kind.

The vessel hit rocks off Italian island on Jan 13, 2012 killing 32 people.

More than 1,000 concrete stacks and six underwater platforms are being used to keep the vessel stable.

Thirty massive tanks filled with air will lift the hulk of the liner off the seabed in June, so that it can be towed away fro the Italian island of Giglio.

All the above was from news. It’s sad isn’t it? You go on a cruise thinking of relaxing and enjoying yourself. One never thinks that a tragedy can occur. It’s so unexpected.
