to assemble laminate flooring on the floor, should make sure that the floor is flat ,dry, smooth. If the surface of your ceramic tile is very rough, then it's not good for the flooring. besides, as wood flooring should be protected by damp proof material, usually lay under layment on the floor before assembling the wood flooring. so if the surface of your tile is smooth , then you can add a thicker foam layment , like 1.5-3.0mm thickness, which will protect the flooring be damped and also voice resisted.
