If the deflecto says it's ok then your JOIST structure is good to go. Now we need to address the deflection BETWEEN the joists. A layer of 1/2" ply would do nicely here, then CBU (or Ditra) then tile. As for size of tile, it's a personal choice, I prefer larger tile. IMHO, the biggest secret is to pick a tile that you like, regardless of size. With your structure, ceramic is a good choice. No stone will work, sorry, although a porc lookalike will.

give me thin set or give me death!!!
