Zinsser's PErma White or SW Kitchen /Bath or Ben Moore's K&B will work well in humid areas. But you must address the problem of the peeling paint first. Determine why its failing and correct it.

I really liked Sherwin WIlliams Bath paint when I used it. I painted my actual shower wall right above the fiberglass surrond. It gets direct water and has held up perfectly. Cleans easy.

What probably happened is a combination of moisture and hair products on the walls. This is a very common thing in bathrooms. The walls should have been washed thoroughly before priming and painting. Sounds like you need to chip away and sand all the peeling areas and maybe the whole surface real well (maybe with a palm sander and some 150 grit) and spot prime the areas that were peeling. The paints that were mentioned are great. I've used the Perma white by Zinsser and the Sherwin Bath Paint....
