What’s it really like?

Life in the Royal Navy is different to anything you might experience as a civilian. For a start, you could find yourself deployed to far-flung places, where you'll get time off to explore. Your crew will feel like family, but you'll also be able to stay in touch with loved ones back home when you're away. Finding it hard to imagine?
