The HMS Queen Elizabeth is the most powerful aircraft carrier in British history.
The warship set sail for the first time on June 26, conducting sea trials around the North Sea.
It is scheduled to conduct flight trials off the United States east coast in October 2018 and plans to be fully operational by 2020.
The warship is already home to 900 people — 700 Royal Navy members and 200 industry personnel.
And thanks to HMS Queen Elizabeth’s official Twitter account, we can get a glimpse into what life is like on board.
Take a look at the photos below for some behind-the-scenes action on Britain’s mega-ship.
It is home to about 700 Royal Navy members and 200 industry personnel. Here are some of them, waving from the ship.
All 900 crew members share the ship's facilities, such as the canteen, gym, and medical resources, a Ministry of Defence spokesman told Business Insider UK.
It visited Scapa Flow in the Orkney islands on Wednesday to commemorate Edwin Dunning, the first pilot ever to land an aircraft on a moving ship.
On August 2, 1917, Squadron Commander Dunning landed a Sopwith Pup, a British single-seater fighter biplane on HMS Furious in Scapa Flow.
Moving deck landings at the time were a complicated task: While deck crew today secure planes with cables to ensure a safe landing, Dunning had to rely on deck crew to grab the wings of the plane to help him land safely.
When they're at sea, crew walk over six miles a day to get around the ship. They also climb the equivalent of 80 ladders.
Boxing coaches are on hand for those with less experience. Here is one of them leading a women's boxing session.
The mega-ship also has a ping pong table -- much like many trendy startup companies around the world.
On a clear day, you might even find crew playing bucketball on the flight deck on a Saturday afternoon.
The warship even has its own rugby team. Here they are, playing on the flight deck while the ship is anchored.
HMS Queen Elizabeth's crew members are a creative bunch. Here's a marine engineer painting a 'Despicable Me' Minion on a tank in the underbelly of the ship.
HMS Queen Elizabeth also hosted GCSE and A-level exam sittings for its crew members earlier this summer.
