Warfare Specialist life on board

Hi everyone, I've decided to join up as a Warfare Specialist and can't find certain bits of info, was hoping somebody here could help.

Mainly, what's life like on deployment? Are Warfare Specialists deployed on all operations or just the larger ships? What's the accommodation like? How many hours a week are you working and what is there to do in downtime? Are there many sports clubs actually on the ships? Can you get any food whenever you want or are there strict meal times and menus?

I might as well post this here too; What's the average length of time between promotions for ratings? If you don't get promoted how quickly does your pay increase up the scale?

I've picked the official site apart and read through all the leaflets etc. so hoping to get a few nitty gritty details about everyday life.

Thanks for the help!
