Odd, we did get very explicit instructions about visas. We flew into Hanoi and used myvietnamvisa.com
It's easier and less expensive than going through an embassy.
Read the instructions and FAQ carefully, then read them again.
If you enter Vietnam in HCMC, then leave Vietnam for Cambodia, then plan to re-enter Vietnam, be sure to get a multiple entry visa.
You must arrange for your visa in advance, either by going through an embassy, using a visa service here at home, or using an online VOA "visa on advance" service.
Just checking, what exactly does "cruise will be landing by Ho Chi Min City" mean? Are you flying into HCMC to start your tour? Are you ending it there?
