The Lusitania was not the sister ship to the Titanic. The Olympic was Titanic's sister ship. Titanic and Olympic were constructed to "compete" with Lusitania.

Lusitania and Mauritania were sister ships and were part of Cunard's fleet. They were constructed four years before the Titanic. Titanic and Olympic sailed for White Star lines.

While both ships sank, one by iceberg and the other by torpedo, they really weren't too similar. Saying Titanic and Lusitania were sister ships would be like saying Voyager of the Seas and QM2 are sister ships.

Take care,
