Cruise staff are the people who host the cruise directors division events like bingo, dance parties, trivias, dance/craft classes and usually work crowd control for tendering or at the gangway for ports.

I'm guessing the activities coordinator is probably the same as an assistant cruise director or activities manager, who schedules/supervises the cruise staff and reports to the cruise director.

A social hostess/host may do some of the same jobs/events as cruise staff, but may have more administrative duties - arranging for people to dine with the captain, sending amenities to VIPs, arranging onboard weddings etc. My line has transited this job to a "cruise program admin" - who also does the division ordering of supplies/training schedules/budget recordkeeping/etc, etc.
