drop ceiling in bathroom?

My basement bathroom has several locations where it will be extremely difficult hanging sheetrock on the ceiling...pipes, electrical, etc... I was going to plan on installing a dropped ceiling but what about the mosture issue? I won't be taking too many showers down there, but would like to know that if I wanted to, it wouldn't be an issue. Lowes had some vinyl covered tiles...but I don't like them, nor do I know if that would resist moisture but it would seem so.

I think my best option would be to find the tiles that I can paint, and seal them with either a water proof type paint or clear coat type paint that would make it very moist resistant.

Any advise would be appreciated.

I'd go with a good quality drop ceiling tiles & also install a vent fan & use it whenever you use the shower.
