Tile that big are going to require an extreamly solid subfloor and wide floor joists.
What the width of the floor joist, spans, spacing, subflooring?

yeah if you dont have a firm subfloor, and it gives at all when you walk, like it does with plywood, your tiles will crack. and the grout is there to seal it against moisture, especially in a kitchen. If you dont do grout, be prepared for mold.
