More details - the book my sister remembers

Related to my previous post...

 

Here's some more info on the book my sister has vague memories of that she thinks Passengers might be based off of:

"I think it's a relatively older one though. I believe I was in middle school and it wasn't new at that point either.*

 

The main character is a guy. He's the only one awake and the ship I'm pretty sure has a female voice that can talk.... Maybe. That memory could be incorrect

 
I do know that there was a robotic android bartender that the guy would talk to
And I'm pretty sure he was the ship's janitor or something who accidentally got woken up too soon."
So, even if Passengers isn't based on a book, is this thing that my sister remembers a real book? I'm pretty sure I've read more SFF than her, and I can't recall ever reading anything like that. But then again I have huge gaps in my older sci-fi reading.
