A repeater is a requirement for wifi on ships. The steel superstructure is a signal killer and the number of repeaters on board is far more than you would find in a land structure of that size.
The main reason that "some" ships do not have in cabin wifi is because they have not installed the wifi repeaters into the passenger areas.
