Sister ship of capsized Costa Concordia stops in San Diego

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A sister ship of the Italian cruise liner that struck a rock and capsized, killing at least 15 people, was in San Diego Monday.

The Costa Deliziosa left Savona, Italy, Dec. 28 on a 100-day around-the-world cruise that will carry more than 2,300 passengers to 37 ports, according to Travel Daily News International.

The vessel was tied up at Broadway Pier after a northbound leg from Cabo San Lucas, according to the website of Costa Cruises.

The Costa Concordia has laid half-submerged near the Mediterranean island of Giglio since it struck a rock on Jan. 13. Beside the fatalities, 17 people are listed as missing.

The ship's captain, Francesco Schettino, is under house arrest, accused of manslaughter and abandoning the vessel before all the passengers could be safely evacuated.
