Just trying to get people's thoughts on this situation.
Don't worry about it. It's not unusual for the crew members to remember people by name, it happens quite frequently. They're paid to go out of their way to be nice to the guests. Sometimes genuine friendships form, and other times they're forgotten about when the vacation ends. I've become close friends with quite a few people who I met while they were working on the ships.
Also, keep in mind that as a waiter he works extreme hours, which means during his short breaks he has to choose between sleeping, eating, doing laundry, etc... before returning back to work. Using the internet isn't always their top priority, so it's not surprising that he would add her months later.
