Costa Cruise Lines
A South Florida salvage company, along with its Italian counterpart, has completed raising the wreck of the Costa Concordia in the early hours of Tuesday morning after a 19-hour-long operation off the Italian island of Giglio where the huge cruise liner capsized in January of 2012.
A South Florida salvage company, along with its Italian counterpart, are slowly lifting the Costa Concordia ship into an upright position off the coast of Giglio.
It’s been more than a year since the Costa Concordia ran aground off the Italian coast, but Tuesday the sole defendant in the case, Captain Franceso Schettino, was scheduled to go to trial in Italy.
The cruise ship Costa Allegra, disabled two days ago by an engine room fire, arrived in the Indian Ocean island of Seychelles early Thursday.
Eight Americans are among the more than 600 passengers aboard the Costa Allegra who are sleeping on the decks of the crippled cruise ship, without power and under tow after a fire damaged the engine room Monday. The ship is owned by Doral-based Carnival Cruise Lines.
Costa Cruise Lines, the Italian line owned by Miami-based Carnival Cruise Lines which is still trying to recover the sunken Costa Concordia off the Italian coast, has a second ship in trouble.
Miami-based Carnival Cruise Lines is now facing a revised lawsuit which adds more plaintiffs and claims that seek millions of dollars in damages in last month’s Costa Concordia cruise ship disaster.
Six passengers from the doomed Costa Concordia ship have filed a lawsuit against Costa Cruise Lines and Carnival Cruise Lines seeking $460 million in damages.
