Not having backup generators (EPS) on the ship in another location above the water line saved money and resulted in more profits for the corporation.
Now imagine a fire breaks out on a ship, and you don’t power to provide water to fight the fire. All US Navy ships have EPS.
Also due to the design, that ship could easily tip over without working mechanical balance systems. Passengers on the ship said they thought it was going to tip over. Making a tall and thin ship, saves money too. All of those newer tall ships are disasters waiting to happen according to most ship engineers.
Corporate greed strikes again!

Every passenger ship should have redundant ( back-up) capability for
all systems. I have been on four Royal Caribbean cruses and will be
on the Oasis of the Sea in two months. Have never had a problem with
Royal Caribbean anywhere or for any reason. I do wish I lived closer to the ocean though, it’s such a long way from Las Vegas. Oh, wait,
is that California falling into the ocean?
