You can leave whenever you want. For an internship you might need to stay to get full credit for your school, but as just a job you can really stop working whenever. The average on my ship was 8-12 weeks.

Kitchen staff hours aren't any weirder than any other worker on the boat-- everyone is working a minimum of 12 hours and probably more than that. There are no single rooms for grunts, it's going to be a share and how many you are sharing with depends on how many other workers there are on your boat and how many rooms they have dedicated for staff. The room I was put in was meant for 4 but there were times I was the only one in it because the crew was top heavy with male workers so female quarters were not quite as cramped. The crew rooms are under the water line and my room had mildew growing on the carpet in the room. There was black mold in the air conditioning unit. Between that and the lack of sleep, expect to be sick a lot once on board. Bring your vitamins! Get a flu shot, too-- working on a boat, you are exposed to a lot of new people every week. Anything you can do to boost your immunity and get innocculated against things like the flu will be to your advantage.
