Visa for travelling on a cruise with Holland America March 2011

Hello

I will be travelling on a cruise with Holland America March 2011 and will be stopping at 3 ports in Vietnam during the cruise.

Do I need a 30 day multiple trip visa or can I use 30 day single trip visa for both stops? 
 
I am a UK citizen with UK passport.  Could you please tell me whether I need to apply for a Visa before my trip.
Also I have read about applying on line with pick up of visa when arrive.  However it only mentions airports.  Does this apply to the cruise ship and can you get the visa at the cruise terminal when you get off the ship?
 
I will be stopping at the following ports
Phu My (for HoChi Min City)
Nha Trang
Halong Bay
 
Thank you

Dear Jane Ruddock

You need to obtain your visa prior to your trip since there is no visa on arrival for seaports. Please find the below for information on how to obtain your visa in UK at Vietnamese embassy:
