The Costa Concordia after the cruise ship ran aground

Tour operators are usually opportunists. They seize every opportunity to mint money. And – the wreckage of Costa Concordia has opened up the floodgates.

The cruise ship disaster has seen a spurt in tourism of Tuscany – seeing the sights of the spots in and around the Giglio Islands where the ship met with the disaster is gaining in popularity. Giglio Islands is a tiny island with an area of only 24-square kilometers and is a nature reserve and a marine sanctuary.

The cruise ship Costa Concordia ran aground in the reefs on 13th of January 2012 and 32 persons lost their lives in the tragedy – the ship had, on board a huge holiday crowd of over 4000 passengers from as many as 60 different countries.

Tour operators are exploiting this God-sent opportunity to mint money. It is not bad, everyone needs money and taking tourists around the reefs is certainly an attractive proposition.

The tourists can let their imaginations run wild and dream up situations that had never happened.
