Which quieter for condo below me - LVP+underlay or laminate+underlay?

I want a floor that is more durable for a beach condo than wood, but need to satisfy downstairs neighbors that the sound will be ok. i know i cant use a thick underlay with LVP, but is LVP with an allowable underlay (like 3mm QuietWalk?) still quiter than laminate with full half inch cork (just because LVP is naturally quiter?)? or will the laminate with half inch cork be quieter? i know laminate can be creaky for some people but not sure if half inch cork solves that for me or for downstairs?
