40+ Photos of Cruise Ship Left Abandoned For Years

The Costa Concordia was one of the best cruise ships in the world, with 1,500 cabins, a multi-level theater, a casino, and could accommodate over 4,000 passengers at a time.

It was a luxurious ocean city paradise that wowed everyone who stepped foot on it.

Unfortunately, disaster struck on January 13th, 2012 when the ship hit a rock formation only two hours after setting sail on a seven-day cruise. The marvelous ship sank and no one saw it again… until now.

It took a herculean effort to pull the Costa Concordia from the water, and the effects of the tragic crash are now more apparent than ever.

Playing slot online is another great way to have a great time and just have fun.

For the first time ever, photographer Jonathan Danko Kielkowski got a rare chance to board the ship to take a look inside. The photos he took are incredible.

The Costa Concordia left its port in the Italian town of Civitavecchia with 4,252 passengers on board. No one had any idea they’re heading for disaster.

Now the cruise ship has become a ghost ship. When German photographer Jonathan Danko Kielkowski got a chance to get onto the ship to see what things looked like inside, he took haunting photos like this: people’s belongings still scattered around the hallways and rooms.

This used to be a magnificent theater that would hold hundreds of people. Now it is in ruins.

Somehow, the beautiful artwork in the grand halls miraculously survived the crash.

The wreckage of the command room where engineers said to have a heated argument with the captain about the boat’s increasingly dangerous speeds.

This bedroom looks somewhat still intact, but creepy. You can find hundreds of these abandoned rooms on the Concordia.

Passengers were enjoying in this casino hours before the deadly disaster, drinking and gambling. If only the ship had better luck with its sailing…

The surviving passengers later said that it was like a scene from Titanic.

This amazing staircase with its emerald-colored finish continues to shine through the damage.

You can still see the old emerald elevator here. Still quite majestic among the ruins.
