I can't really comment on a specific soap...but a soft soap or cream seems to do better in hard water...

My two cents: don't forget about bottled water if the tap water is too hard. I did that last Christmas when I was using hard well-water. Made life soo much easier.

La Toja shave stick always rides in my dopp kit. I will sometimes throw in a second soap if the occasion calls for it. Otherwise La Toja is such​ a great performer there's just no need to travel with anything else.

When at home, I hardly use Proraso, but for some reason I really like it for traveling. I use both soaps and creams. 
Enjoy your trip.

I usually take Valobra (pick a scent). Last time it was cologne scent. This is the best soap I have ever used, so when I travel take the best. It pairs nicely with Fine Platinum which is another winner for travel. The scents don't get old with repeated use.

I'd have to say my new-found favorite.  Tabac.  I've been DE shaving since 2013 and wish I had tried this sooner instead of just last week.  I can't believe how great this soap is.  For me, both the scent and performance are outstanding.

YES.  I had a terrible time with hard water last summer on vacation.  This year my shaving kit will include several bottles of water.

Just back from a two week cruise. I took B&M Latha Oceana, which seemed appropriately themed. it is a top notch soap with a wonderful scent and performance that didn't have me antsy for a change.

An alternative, for ease of use and compactness, is a Palmolive stick. Carry-on sized too!

I've had to do this several times for my job.  Palmolive original is my choice.

I agree with the recommendation for Valobra patchouly. Nice scent. Compact, plastic tub. Great performance!

I'm a big lavender guy and if I had to use a soap/cream that many times straight it would have yo have an appealing scent so I would personally go with aos tallow lavender.

There were a lot of good suggestion from you gentlemen, and I want to post an update to let you know what I did. 

I didn't have any space or weight limitations, but I decided to stick with my plan of taking only one soap.  I ended up taking what has become one of my preferred soaps.  Using it for ten days in a row just confirmed its status.  I initially obtained one tin of this soap when it was released in February.  I subsequently acquired a second tin during one of Phil's sales.  After I post this I'm getting a third tin, before this LE sells out.  For me, this soap is top tier as to performance and scent.  My only regret is that it's an LE and may not be available again.

I've already said Yardley and after that another couple vintage soaps, Penhaligon English Fern tallow and AOS Sandalwood  tallow but amongst in production offerings,  any of the following would make me happy slightly in this order
C&S Oxford & Cambridge 
MWF 
grated Speick stick
Fine Fresh Vetiver 
Honorable mention in the vintage category,  C&E Sienna, Ralph Lauren Safari and among current models,  PdP,  C&S 88

Castle and Forbes sandalwood... not overly expensive, always reliable, good lather regardless of the water quality and a good secure screw top over a plastic base that could take a beating in transit.

I'd bring a bunch of samples, 3-4, so I'd still have variety.  I'd bring 1-2 aftershaves, but they would be generic scents and not perfectly paired to the soap.

I've always liked WSP's samples for travel.
