Olympic was hardly unseaworthy in her final years. She was quite sound as a matter of fact. Like all older ships, she experienced cracks and other problems that needed repair, but she was about average in this respect. The Aquitania, Berengaria, Majestic, Leviathan, Homeric and her other contemporaries all had structural defects that had to be repaired at one time or another.
Olympic was the most cost-effective and efficient vessel of her size and speed when compared to her running mates after the Cunard take-over of White Star. A strong case can be made that her retirement was premature and she should have been kept in the express service with Aquitania and the QM.
