It's scary how many tiled showers are not built to industry standards, but if they are, assuming the structure is sound, they should last until you decide to remodel.

So, as CX said, a picture from further back to get an idea of the scope of the shower may help.

Generally, in a wet area, you wouldn't be tiling on plaster. Cement board or other concrete products, yes, but not plaster.
