Careers / LIFE IN THE NAVY
The people you meet in the Navy will be your colleagues, your team, your teachers, your friends. They’ll be the people you make a lifetime of memories with.
Unwind from the day
“When we’re at sea, we play sports on the upper deck, sunbathe, with a book or whale watch. On my last deployment, I visited the pyramids, went on safari in Kenya and watched camel racing in Dubai.”
“After dinner, we relax down the mess deck, holding Xbox competitions, watching TV or chilling on laptops. If we’re alongside, we’ll usually go out exploring what each country has to offer.”
Hands to bathe
When First formally recorded as a command in the 18th Century, the call of ’Hands to bathe’ is something everyone looks forward to. The ship stops, so those who want to can jump in and enjoy a swim.
You won’t always feel like a trip to the gym when you finish work for the day. Ships - and bases - have communal areas where you and your friends can relax, watch a film or game together.
