We’ve learned new details about the cruise ship disaster off the coast of Italy.
On Sunday, officials say salvage for the Costa Concordia will start next month.
According to the ship’s owner it could take a year to remove the wreckage.
Once the ship is floating it will be towed to an Italian port.
Officials say a decision on what to do with it then will be up to Italian authorities.
This announcement follows news that the bodies of all but two of 32 people presumed dead in the wreck have been recovered.
The cruise liner struck rocks and turned on its side back in January.
