If you have a problem with moisture in your bath, correct the inadequate exhaust ventilation. Then you can coat your wood with almost any finish.

I agree with chfite. If the wood is in nice shape I believe it would look good with poly or varnish on it.

Personally I would stain and poly [or just poly] a color to suit me. Poly and varnish both come in 3 sheens [satin,semi, and gloss] Since its your home pic what you like and go with it.
