Most cruise ships berth at Chan May, about (45?) minutes north of Da Nang, but I think Azamara is small enough to berth in Da Nang itself?
In Da Nang there will be taxi/van tours offered on-spec at the port. They'll be cheap and with bargaining even cheaper. - I recall about $90 for the day split between 8 of us, tho that was mebbe 10 years ago. But their need is greater than ours, and a good tip left everyone happy.
With two days you can do what Edinburgher did, & go to the two main destinations - one day to Hue (we've not been there) , and the other day to Marble Mountain, China Beach and Hoi An (an excellent day).
If your port is Chan May, the distance to Hoi An etc is further but still manageable.
Drivers will want to take you to one of the major stonemasons' workshops along the beach, clearly they get commission. The easiest way to say no is to say yes & make it a fleeting visit - it's quite interesting anyway as a 20 minute stop. But regardless of price don't be tempted by the marble furniture or anything else that has to be shipped - it can take months, you can end up with second-quality or damaged, and altho shipping is included there's import tax and transportation from port to home to pay for.
