Full damage assessment, patch up the hull damage, secure internal watertight boundaries, pump out for Britain (Italy), and waiting for a very high tide will also help.
I bet it is salavageable but it will never Cruise again and will nd up being a floating casino/hotel in Hong Kong, Taiwan or somewhere oriental.
