Hi David -

There is generally no need to seal porcelain tiles as they tend to be non-absorbent. The grout in between them can be sealed to help prevent staining.
The real key to keeping the shower tile looking its best is proper maintenance. Get a squeegee and use it all the time plus create a good cleaning routine that includes scrubbing the shower down several times a year.... and let it dry out regularly....
