Hi dc917ny,

You may find you're in the wrong place to ask then, 'experienced cruse passengers' often tend to be rude and demanding and often don't share information on forums like trip advisor.

Generally Vietnam visas are arranged by the cruise ship companies themselves.

You should however confirm with the cruise company itself. It is usually very prominent in their FAQ's

Cruise ship day visas cost USD$5 and are issued by an immigration official onboard the cruise ship.

Even if you visited every port on the cruise along the coast of Vietnam it would still be a fraction of the cost of an Embassy issued visa so no need to go down that path as suggested by post #6

While the cost of the visa is $5, not all cruise lines charge that amount for obtaining the visa for you.

Celebrity, at last check were charging $6, but passengers on Princess were being charged in excess of $40 for the same visa.

Go to Cruise Critics - Asia Portsof Call, and search "visas for Vietnam"

You will find you answers there
