We had to apply for the Vietnamese visa before we left the US (I believe from the Vietnamese embassy). We bought the Cambodian visa in the airport upon arrival.
Sorry, I have no idea how this differs from cruising. Maybe you could review a roll call site for a Holland cruise that visited these countries recently?
Here is the Visa application process information from the two countries' embassy sites. Good luck and enjoy your trip ! Are you going to Angkor Wat?!
Vietnam Consular Services - Visa Information
I imagine that the various countries' requirements change from time to time. It also may be that arrangements are done differently for a Grand Voyage. So I would wait to see what HAL tells you a few months in advance. My experience has been that they provide all necessary information at the appropriate time.
Hope this helps! Mary Ellen
