Linoleum will be much cheaper and very durable if you are worried about money.

You could go the cork route but you should use glue down tiles instead of a floating floor. Make sure you caulk around the perimeter and put 2 coats of polyurethane to seal the surface for good measure

Sheet linolium or tile.
Not square tiles.
To many seams for water to get in.
Personaly I'd never suggest using cork floors in a bathroom.
