What's it like to live on a Navy ship? Firsthand knowledge preferred.

I'm interested in joining the Navy, but I'd like more information on the day-to-day life and accommodations. What kind of sleeping quarters are available? How much space will I have for personal items? What is there to do when I'm done working? I understand that space will be limited and that I'll be taught how to make the most of it, but I'd like more specifics on what I'll be getting myself into if I enlist. If you've served on a Navy ship, I'm interested in your experiences and in links to any Web sites with accounts that you find accurate (particularly with pictures of accommodations).
P.S. This is my first question on this site. If it's a dupe, please let me know what search terms you used to find the earlier thread so that I can avoid making similar mistakes in the future. Thank you for your help.
