Our Oceania cruise visits there next year and there is a severe dearth of information about cruise stops there. Anyone been there on a cruise and can recommend any tours?

I have been to Antwerp, but not while on a cruise ship. The old center is nice just to walk around, go into a chocolate store and have a coffee somewhere with a nice warm Belgium Waffle. What kind of tours are they offering?

From Antwerp you are a half hour (or so by train) away from Bruges.  The Antwerp train station itself is a tourist destination as is the diamond district.  Some interesting museums.  If you have enough time, I would think about Bruges or Ghent.

so you would say a day in  Bruges or Ghent would be better than Atwerp?

That would be my personal opinion.  It depends on how much time you have in port.  If it is only a few hours, staying in Antwerp makes sense.  If you have all day, pick one of the others. Bruges is a little further from Antwerp than Ghent but check the train schedules if you are DIY to see what makes sense. If you are looking for a tour or a driver, it is probably about the same.  Bruges is more touristy than Ghent.
