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.
