This is how life should be! Plenty of opportunities to laze around in crisp whites waiting for the officer's mess to open, where the other chaps are waiting to have ding doing time. Surely there could be no better place? All that fun below decks and above and on base a fellow has to relax.
Yet this is early on. Time and events will no doubt move fast. Faster than you might expect.
So keep the back straight, shave the chin and comb that hair. There's much ado with your Atlantic cousins.
