I'm not sure whether private maritime insignia follow military conventions, but here's an album of US naval uniform shoulder marks and another for sleeve ranks.

It is a bit confusing as they do not really follow the same as military and they also have differant colours of stripes and colours between the stripes. You have Staff Officers which are primarily charged with the operation of the ship itself and Hotel or Accomodations Officers who are in charge of the cabins and related housekeeping, as well as the Food & Beverage Officers which are only concerned with their departments. You also have the Medical Staff. I have seen some information put out by the respective cruiselines about how their insignas run etc but they are not always readily available.
