I know this won't help for this particular situation, but if on a future cruise you meet a staff member that you feel has (in your opinion) done an outstanding job, you can give him/her a tip (in a Thank-You card) that reflects your appreciation, and ask if you can keep in touch via e-mail or "snail mail". On one of our cruises, we found out that a young woman working at the Purser's desk was from our home state (Ohio) and that her birthday was that week that we were on board. Because she had been so helpful to us, when we stopped in St. Thomas, we looked for a card shop and bought a birthday card for her and included a little something extra for her. Unfortunately, we didn't think to ask for her e-mail address prior to disembarkation, but hopefully we'll see her again on a future cruise.
