Rotting Grout in OLD Bathroom
Unfortunately with a house that old, you're bound to have "issues" behind the walls in the bathroom. I have remodeled bathrooms under 5 years old and they have been moldy. Your best bet is to tear down as much of the tile/walls around the bathroom as you can. You're probably going to find things you wish you hadn't but now's the time to take care of it. Mold and rot don't take care of themselves.
Certain surrounds will get attached directly to the studs anyway. Depends on what your purchase. I think one of those surround units will be the best choice right now while still allowing you to see what's going on behind the walls. Just be prepared or have the budget to start replacing rotted wood should you find it.
And by all means, try as hard as you can to get some ventilation fans in those baths!
