that is a really really broad question hun. It depends on your rate of course. I was a QM on board a DDG. My day was hectic. I had 6 hour watches 6 on and 6 off. And just because I had 6 off did not mean I had time off. Work had to be done, drills were done, lots of things to do! Usually there was more of us but it also depends on whether we were undermanned. Food isn't horrible but it's not great either. I had my friends send me lots of ramen noodles! haha I did 2 deployments and each was completely different.

the ship operates 24 hours a day. each individual's 'day' will last anywhere from 12-18 hours on average where they will not be sleeping or off the clock. but the time off will not be in one chunk.. it could easily be 3 hours here and 2 hours there, not in one group

Ships get deployed for six to nine months. Lots of time at sea, Training and maintenance work, and standing your watch. Port visits to foreign ports are the good bits.
