Grout vs Caulk

In my new travertine shower, where do I not grout? The corners where the walls meet? Where the floor meets the walls? Where my tiled ceiling meets the walls? I am getting close to grouting and want to be sure I am grouting where I need to and caulking the appropriate locations too. I have have siliconized acrylic caulk that matches the grout. Any advise?

Well youve named all the places where you should caulk, all the inside corners of the shower. Use a wet sponge to clean up the caulk bead, a nice thin bead is all you need, I run the bead first then go over it with my finger to push the caulk into the joint and wipe off excess and the clean it up with a sponge.
