sorry to hear that your students aren’t having much luck with getting hired. Here’s a link to the agencies in South Africa in case there’s one you overlooked. Getting hired to work on ships takes more than the right education and training. Make sure your students understand the importance of customizing their resume and cover letter, persistence in follow up on their applications, English skills (written and verbal). Instruct them to all have passports so that they can list this on their resume/cover letter as well. If you/they have any specific questions feel free to post them on our cruise job forum.
