Have not sailed on the Golden yet - will be on November 3rd.
However, on our 4 previous Princess cruises, there has always been shampoo, body wash, and lotion in the bathroom. On the most recent one, the product in the dispenser bottle in the shower was body wash and shampoo all in one. I did not care for it for my hair, but I always travel with my preferred shampoo, so it was not a concern for me.
I do not like the hairdryers that they provide, but as with shampoo, I travel with my own. I find their hairdryers too "weak".
The ships have all had laundry facilities located on each deck; there are 2 ironing boards and irons in each one.
Each cabin has a small refrigerator, and the steward restocks the ice morning and night.
Hope this helps.

I have been on the Golden twice; both times in a mini-suite. They are different from the regular balcony cabins and other regular cabins.

- Shower & bathtub
- Lotus Spa soap, shampoo, and lotion. No dispensers in the shower.
- Hairdryer is very good
- Bathrobes
- Mini-bar with refrigerator
- Glass of bubbly on arrival
- No irons are allowed in any cabin.

Just returned from Alaska aboard the Goden on the 7th. They had the Lotus Spa shampoo,conditioner, lotion and soap in the bathroom and replaced it as nightly. Not dispenser. We asked for robes and that was no problem. They had a large laundry room, we used the 1 that was 1 floor down from us, deck 10. Irons/boards/ washer and dryer plus soap dispenser. $1.00 for washing and same for drying. Hairdryer was good but I'm used to one with a little more power, but if you are not too picky don't pack one just use theirs.
Have a great time!
