floors or walls should be tiled first?

Typical 5x10 bathroom - 12x12 tiles on the floor, 6x6 tiles around the tub/shower at one end and along the wall behind the vanity and toilet - drywall other side and end walls with one row of the 6x6 as baseboard.

Doing the walls first keeps the floor from being walked and spilled on - so am thinking floor last. Any reason why not?
