there is soap you can buy on the ship. But you might want to bring some of your own if you don't like the soap they have.

Take 3 swimsuits/2 pairs of shorts/I dressy thingy/underwear/ and leave the rest of the room for booze... If you drink enough you won't care! lol
Really they do have self-serve laundry rooms and also about halfway thru the cruise they will offer and laundry "sale" and what you can put in the bag is a flat fee.

Nice thing about having self service laundry rooms on ships, you can under-pack. Even doing just one load of clothes during the week is a huge help. Also, now with the airline weight restrictions, why over-pack? You can either bring soap or just purchase from the vending machines in the laundry rooms, very easy.

Thanks for the information, I always take bounce sheets on any trip since it keeps my shoes fresh.
