    It all depends on the type of boat.

    If you go for Vanguard class, they go to sea for 3-4 months (maybe more) at a time, no shore leave, and just go back to Faslane again.

    When my ex was on HMS Trafalgar, he got 3 weeks in the USA, and Hong Kong.

    Within the boat - you have to triple bunk (Timeshare a bunk, you get 8 hours each), its very cramped, the air and water is recycled, and there are no windows You can't shave (or you werent used to, might have changed now), and its not very hygienic, as you can imagine with a load of men in cramped conditions.

    Put you off yet?
