Despite the shocking image of the ship laying on it's side, it is likely that re-floating it will not be terribly difficult. It is good for the accident investigation that all the physical evidence is right there within reach and not sitting at the bottom of the sea.

I am not one to speculate on things when there is so little information available, but given the Captain did tell the guests there had been an electrical problem, then I would tend to believe it was a chain of events that initiated with the electrical problem taking out key systems. Note where the hull rupture is - right in the midst of the engineering spaces.
