The right side of the Costa Concordia is seen after it was lifted upright on the Tuscan Island of Giglio, Italy, early Sept. 17, 2013. The crippled cruise ship was pulled completely upright after a complicated, 19-hour operation to wrench it from its side where it capsized last year off Tuscany, with officials declaring it a "perfect" end to a daring and unprecedented engineering feat.
