Looks rather top-heavy to me. She does so in this photograph at least.

In the days of ocean passenger transport (before stabilizers ) 'lazy rollers' were favourably regarded by the travelling public (and consequently by owners), a stable 'quick roller' gaining a bad reputation and jeopardizing profitability. Ship designers thus had to pare stability to a minimum and particularly in the days of coal burning steamers at the end of a long voyage with depleted bunkers often ships had very little positive stability at all , the safety of the ship depending very much on the skill of the officers in ballasting and handling. There is the case of a passenger ferry which caused so many complaints that she was returned to the builders so that iron weights could be installed on the upper deck to enhance her 'laziness'.
