Tile the ceiling like you would the wall, using a good tile adhesive. If it doesn't already have backer board, you should install some. You can minimize cuts by starting with full tiles on one corner and working to the least exposed sides. However, you need to make sure you have decent sized cut pieces on the edges. If time isn't an issue, I'd do the floor first, grout it then do the ceiling. Welcome and good luck.

I'd do the cieling before the floor.
What if you drop a piece.
Plus, grouting a cieling is a very interesting task, and a laborous cleanup.
