Was on the Royal from Buenos Aires to Ft. Lauderdale in 2004.
Powerpoint (a guess electricity outlet) it's just above the vanity/desk near the TV. Bring a power strip so you can have more outlets.
There is some shampoo and hand soap if memory serves me correctly.
As relevert stated there is a discription of the ports in your cabin when you arrive. Plus the tour desk can help you. But you may want to reserve before you get on board. We learned as we went along that the earlier you book the better you guide is/tour. I'd never realized this before. But when your on a smaller ship and for longer the crew chats with you and you can find all kinds of little points of important information.
Wardope was large enough. We kept our suit cases under our bed. We kept just moving things we weren't using in the suit cases. The temperature changes so it worked fine. Packing is rough because of the hot then really cold weather.
Coffee, teas (hot & cold), lemonade, milk, orange juice. Are available on Liddo deck at the buffet. Nothing in regular cabins for making tea or coffee. Room service was not 24hrs. like other ships, when I was on the Royal. There is a small refrigerator.
I think a beer was $3.50. It may be more now.
You may want to ask your room stewart for a egg crate cushion for your bed, the wall one (that folds up) is a little hard, do this as soon as you get on the ship.
Most every where we went US dollars and $5's were the most used currency.
The pursers desk even ran out at the last part of the cruise of those small bills.
Since your asking on this board I assume your taking a cruise in SA. It's a great part of the world to visit. I got some interesting information on www.lonelyplanet.com
before going. It's not a cruise web site but it can give you some insight from people that are on land. As this cruise has a number of land tours. Have a great cruise.
