Why did advertisements warn travelers that if they sailed on the Lusitania they did so at their own risk?

The Lusitania was a boat that sailed across the Atlantic Ocean from America to some other Allied Country in Europe. In the Atlantic Ocean the Central Powers (mainly Germany) had UBoats that sank a lot of ships travelling to and fro from the Allied forces. The Lusitainia was sunk on it's voyage to Europe.
