The Italian cruise ship that struck a reef in January 2012 before capsizing was refloated earlier this week. Ship captain Francesco Schettino is being tried for alleged manslaughter after causing the 2012 wreck that killed 32.

Investigators also plan to search the ship for the body of an Indian waiter, the only body that was never found.

In total, BBC News reports that the operation to refloat and tow the Costa Concordia from the reef to Genoa will have cost about $2 billion.
