Years After This Cruise Ship Sank, Photographers Make Haunting Discovery

Rate this story

Hitting the seas in 2006, the Costa Concordia was practically a floating city.

With 1,500 cabins, a casino, movie theatre and much more, the ship was able to entertain over 4,000 passengers comfortably, but all that came to an abrupt end in 2012.

While cruising off the coast of Italy, the boat hit a rock formation and sunk to the bottom of the Mediterranean, claiming the life of 33 passengers.

The Costa Concordia has since been pulled out from the depths of the sea, but the insides have not been seen by the world since that fateful day. Fortunately for us, photographer Jonathan Danko Kielkowski was able to document his trip on board and his findings were incredibly spooky to say the least.

The ship’s captain, Francesco Schettino, was arrested shortly after the ship’s sinking for deserting pasengers onboard.

How creepy was that? They should think about turning this boat into a haunted house (once they get rid of the fish smell) because that is one spooky ship!
