ceramic tile in shower stall with steam

I am redoing my bathroom, which will have a stall shower with steam. One tile store said that I have to use porcelain tiles because ceramic can't withstand the high heat of the steam. Another tile store said that ceramic tiles would be OK for at least many years to come, since the steam feature will likely be used only a couple of times a week. The reason I don't want to go with porcelain is I can't find a single one I like -- they're all icky shades of tan and gray with a faux marbling look, and most are really big or funky modern shapes. I just want plain old white subway tiles for the walls and something colorful (like blue mosaic tiles) on the floor. So ... does anyone know whether I will be OK with ceramic?
