I've heard the same, Karen, for broadest appeal the house should have at least one tub in it. When recently remodeled my master bathroom I eliminated the tub but there remains one in the hallway bath.

As for the low ceiling above the tub; if the rest of the ceilings are higher it's possible the area above the tub/shower can be raised. Since you already know the tile on the ceiling is coming down, and whatever substrate the tile is stuck to will also be coming down, it will be very easy to determine if the ceiling can be raised. If it can, do it. Unless there are wires and/or pipes in the way it shouldn't add much to the estimate and will make a fairly small space feel larger, And then you can also NOT tile the ceiling if you choose.
