Can I put a bathtub in my shower?

My fiancee and I moved into an amazing apartment which has everything we wanted...except a bathtub. The shower is porn-worthy: 2 shower heads, a big window looking over the city, and even a fully-tiled cubby with a step up...and it's 6 feet by 5 feet. The cubby is about 3 feet by 2 feet.

We were going to buy something like a Japanese sitting tub for that cubby, but a friend got us paranoid when he said the floor might not be able to hold the weight, and maybe that was why the landlords never put a tub in.
We don't want to ask the landlords for a couple reasons: they're really old and worry about everything; and if they say no, then we would definitely be in the wrong. :P
Do we realistically have to worry about the weight? Is there a way to check it?
