Default Basement Bathroom Insulation/Vapor Barrier

Seems like lots of different opinions on this question. Would greatly appreciate any help.

Situation: Renovating existing basement bathroom. Have demo-ed down to the studs. One wall (where half of new corner shower kit will be) is framed against below-grade cinderblock foundation, other walls are interior basement. Only tile will be on the floor, walls will be mold-resistant drywall. There will be a vent in the ceiling.

Question: Should I insulate any of the walls? Should I use faced insulation? Should I use a separate vapor barrier? If yes, should the vapor barriers be facing out or in?

Thanks in advance.

Jim in WV.

Insulate between studs and bearier on inside to keep moisture away from framing
