Currently joining.. How has your life been in the Navy?

I'm currently in the recruitment process but I'd like to know a little more about the lifestyle. I've heard it's a lot different to what it was back in the day but.. Do you still travel as much? What is exactly on the ships? What would a typical week consist of?

Feel free to tell me what your experience has been like, it's interesting to read :)

Thanks

Don't work for a newspaper by any chance do you? What branch are you going for as each branch has a different "day".

It isn't much use asking an individual how life has been for him/her, it is their life and they will each have lived it differently. Times when they have thoroughly enjoyed life and times when they have detested it.
Life is what you make it.
When I left the RN I was both happy & sad at the same time, happy that I was now a civiie and sad that I would no longer be working alongside my oppos.
So join up and try to enjoy it but at teh end of the day it is up to you.
