A modern ship is designed to sink upright to give the time to get the lifeboats away so something is wrong with the design or the crew training.

It would appear she hit the rock around two thirds of the way along the hull the stabilizers are deployed and not damaged the scraping is not along the full length of the hull, this indicates she was not sailing in a straight line, perhaps turning or drifting yet still moving forward due to a power failure.
