The Costa Concordia, Before and After as presented by: Wall Street Journal

The shipwrecked Costa Concordia cruise liner completed its final journey Sunday, reaching Genoa where it will be scrapped, according to the Associated Press. Pulled by tugboats and nudged by winds, the ship eased into the port in this northwestern Italian city. In January 2012, The Concordia struck a reef when its captain sailed too close to Giglio Island off Tuscany’s coast and capsized, killing 32 people. Last year, salvage workers were able to pull the Costa Concordia cruise ship upright, one of the biggest and costliest operations of its kind. On Wednesday, tugboats pulling the wreck began the five-day journey to Genoa, headquarters of ship owner Costa Crociere Spa and the port where the luxury vessel first set sail in 2005.
