TimmyK,

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.

Take care,
Mike
