Costa Crociere has extended the deadline for acceptance of its compensation proposal for guests involved in the Costa Concordia incident off the island of Giglio, Italy on Jan. 13. The new deadline is March 31, 2012.

The decision was taken to offer passengers more time to evaluate the proposal and to exercise their claims with less urgency.

While the date for acceptance of the proposal has been extended, the process to redeem the compensation package and its terms remain unchanged from when it was offered Jan. 27, 2012.

The extension of the deadline will not impact the claim process, Costa said, but rather "is intended to satisfy the requests of some guests."

The compensation package is available only to guests who have returned home. The families of deceased and missing victims and guests who were injured will be covered under a separate proposal based on their individual circumstances.
