Yes, all cabins will have the same stuff (except spa cabins on specific ships)

It will have body wash and shampoo in a dispenser in the shower and at least one bar of soap, some times they give us two bars. you will also get some samples but these vary, but usually include a razor.

My husband is fine using what's provided in the shower. I need to bring my own shampoo.. and lots of conditioner, as the sea air and the wind would make it impossible to get a brush through it if i used what was in the cabin. The "shower gel" is fine as a soap, but don't expect it to moisturize you if that's what you're after in a shower gel.

The trial size things vary. Sometimes there's a razor, sometimes not. No shaving cream, though, so pack that. I have found teeny packets of toothpaste on each, though. The stewards will usually give you more if you ask. We've also found an antacid of some sort on each cruise.

"Knitting is magic. Knitting is an act of creation and a simple transformation each and every time. Each knitted gift holds hours of my life. I know it looks just like a hat, but really, it’s four hours at the hospital, six hours on the bus, two hours alone at four in the morning when I couldn’t sleep because I tend to worry. It is all those hours when I chose to spend time warming another person. It’s giving them my time—time that I could have spent on anything, or anyone, else. Knitting is love, looped and warm." -Stephanie Pearl-McPhee {The Yarn Harlot}

yes, they have both. Unless you're picky both will work just fine. As a woman, I used the shampoo, but brought my own conditioner.

There is also a basket that has several sample items. Some things I remember in my room where shampoo, razors, Tylenol pm, anti-acid tablets, etc.

I have found that the shampoo and body wash are fine but you do need to bring your own conditioner. That salt air does nasty things to your hair without. I couldn't get a brush through it. I always bring plenty of body moisturizer too. Also no hairdryers in Fantasy class cabins so bring your own.

I assume since they are in dispensers that they are refilled by the room steward as needed? Please let me know if I am correct/wrong. Also, does it lather up pretty well? I am weird about that...

I have a LOT of hair and usually those tiny sample bottles you get in hotel rooms is not enough for an extended stay, nor does it lather very well, so I always bring my own.

Its like dove or some cheap brand like that. .. but yes if you manage to use who the whole dispenser they will refill it. We only had that happen once .. on RCL and had to tell the guy to refill it. Obviously he missed it when he was cleaning ..(and this was a expensive JS, so you would think a little extra care).

I dont thnk you could use up the whole dispenser, its a lot of shampoo.
