Ghent day trip worthwhile on Vantage PreCruise to see Tulips

Hi Four of us will be going on a trip on Vantage 4/6/2011 of Waterways of Holland and Belgium Tulips. What optional tours pre cruise worth going on and was the optional tour of Flemish Tier worthwhile Belgium? How about Aslsmeer: World's Largest Flower Auction /

Have been on several Presidential Cruises with Vantage but have always been interested in this itenetray.

Don't see Ghent mentioned anywhere in your post, so kinda wondering why it is posted here.

As regards the only town that IS mentioned in the question itself (as opposed to the title), Aalsmeer is in the Netherlands, not Belgium. I can't work out what is meant by "was the optional tour of Flemish Tier worthwhile Belgium?" (!) but in any case, questions about specific tours offered by a specific cruise company would be better addressed to one of the many cruise review websites rather than a general travel forum.

Also, if by any chance the question title means you are only interested in visiting places where you can see tulips: there are no tulip fields around Ghent. There are begonias, which flower in late July/August.

Ghent is known for it's azaleas and Rhododendrons ... not tulips;

Incidentally, I guess you meant that you'll be visiting on April the 6th 2012 and not the 4th of June 2011... which has already passed.

Take a look at the Cruise Critic website. People who have gone on this cruise before may be able to answer your question.
