It took engineers 19 hours to raise the ship from its side.
"We are now ready to move to the next steps," engineers announced.
The brother of a waiter whose body has not been recovered from the Costa Concordia, hopes the search team will find his remains.
The operation to shift the stricken Costa Concordia ship from the rocks off the Italian island of Giglio has been completed.
