Do they give you toiletries on the Dream cruise in the staterooms?

Maybe a silly question, but I am trying to figure out how much/what to pack. With all the airline restrictions these days, all the weight adds up! And all those bottles with stuff weigh a ton.
So what do you get on the dream when you sail in the bathroom? Should you bring all your own stuff?

Also a laundry question. If you want to do laundry on the ship, how does that work? SHould you just bring your detergent? Change?

The staterooms have a typical selection such as you'd find in a hotel: soap, shampoo, conditioner, but on our cruise, there was no lotion. We brought our own, just in smaller containers to reduce the weight in our suitcases (we drove). Each deck containing cabins has a laundry room that includes an iron/iron board, washers, and dryers. The cost for detergent is extra. You can also send out your clothes to be pressed and/or washed for a fee.

The staterooms have H20+ Spa Sea Marine products -- you can check them out/sample them before your trip if you're unsure if you'll like them. I happen to love them. They are great for my hair after it gets wind-tossed in the salty air.
In our stateroom, we had the shampoo, conditioner, lotion, and facial and bath bar soap - but i have heard that you can also request shower gel from your stateroom host.

For laundry I recommend getting the purell 3 in 1 sheets. They have detergent, fabric softener and an anti static guard in them. They are a dry sheet so no worries about packing liquids, there's no measuring and pack very easily.

I have used them on all of my cruises (DCL & Carnival) and it makes laundry a breeze.

Try to go to the laundry room at an off time (either really early or really late) because they can get very busy.

I used those too! I actually used 1/2 a sheet per load (cut length wise) and it worked perfectly.
Laundry products are $1 each charged to the stateroom and washers and dryers are $2 per cycle.
