Very nice. Apparently, per the twitter thread, these are sailor accommodations. Much better than what I expected, given the Russian origin ship design, which traditionally doesn't provide good quarters for ORs (hot bunking, no separate mess, etc. as shown in our submarine documentaries)

I expect the Vikrant to be even better.

The accommodation is far superior to that of the venerable Viraat!
Ru vessels today especialy their large N-subs have excellent crew quarters and facilities. Greater automation is one reason,plus the long UW patrols demand extra facilities. I think many US vessels have their unique feature,the ice-cream soda fountain!

The upper bunk berth reminds me of railway’s AC coaches. Most striking commonality is that netted magazine or book holder on the wall and reading light

The light should be placed higher as it could hurt heads jumping to order when the alarm is given. It would be great if each berth has a built in video screen too,headphone jacks too for silent watching,part of a centralised system like Emirate's ICE on flights.
So much can be uploaded,watched.Technical manuals on various aspects of SOPs for the ship,apart from entertainment. CCTV coverage too which would be useful in rough weather,damage control,etc.
