Costa Concordia Is Bigger Than The Titanic

Costa Concordia, Crews in Italy are busy right now trying to flip the shipwrecked Costa Concordia upright, a year and a half after it ran aground and capsized, ending up perched on two underwater mountain peaks.
The salvage process is incredibly expensive and complex, and if it goes awry, there's no good backup plan.
Costa Concordia

Why so difficult?
The Costa Concordia is simply enormous. It's bigger than the Titanic.
To compare the two ill-fated ships, we pulled together stats from old press releases from Fincantierei, which built the cruise liner, as well as sites dedicated to the histories of the famed SS United States and Queen Mary, also worthy of Titanic comparisons.
Here's how they measure up:

Length
Costa Concordia: 951.4 feet
Titanic: 882.9 feet
Passenger Capacity
Costa Concordia: 3,780
Titanic: 2,440
Number Of Crew Members
Costa Concordia: 1,068
Titanic: 860
Number Of Decks
Costa Concordia: 13
Titanic: 9
Gross Tonnage
Costa Concordia: 112,000 gross tons
Titanic: 46,329 gross tons
The Costa Concordia is bigger than the Titanic in every respect, except in lives lost. 32 people died after the Costa Concordia crashed, while more than 1,500 were killed in the sinking of the Titanic in 1912.
