Can you help me with some tile questions?

I'm planning on installing this type of tile I purchased at Lowes.

Lowe's 6x12 Tile

They are 6x12 tiles. The bathroom is small and narrow. It measures 12 1/2 by 5 feet. The tub is at the end, but it will be converted to a walk in shower. The door is on the other far end with the vanity and toilet located on the side.

Here are my questions:

How should I layout these tiles? I'm assuming I should go with the 12" side running parallel with the long side of the bathroom. Should I go with a 1/2 tile running bond or just lined up?

What size gap should I use 1/8" or 1/16?" What color grout?

I don't really like the idea of doing the whole bathroom including the shower wall with the same tile. What are your thoughts? Should I go with a different type of tile or go with the same? If the latter, what color or type should I go with?
