I used Ultracolor FA for the walls and floor of my shower. Been in daily use for 3 years now. It gets scrubbed regularly. Still hard as a rock. Never noticed the slightest softening.

I’d go with option 2 or 3. I’m not going to get into the “should of…” discussion. You have to work with what you got at this point.
On option 2, no problem tiling to drywall up that high. It’s...

I think you got lucky messing up and getting the hole in the center of the tile. That way you won’t have issues grouting and personally I think it’s aesthetically more pleasing.
