Bathroom ceiling options

We're in the process of a bathroom remodel, replacing all the wallboard (as the previous owner used cheap recycled paperboard type stuff, and never quite finished the project. For the walls we're using a moisture resistand tileboard designed for bathrooms, for the floor, adhesive backed tile. Other than the standard painting of the wallboard for the ceiling, what are some other options available? A moisture resistant ceiling panel maybe? The wife wanted me to consider using the same tileboard on the ceiling but I think that would make it look too much like the boys room at a high school.

I would use a good satin latex enamel paint. Paints specified for bath rms have extra mildewcide or you also can add mildewcide to most paints if you think it might be a problem.
