I would have thought you could have baths fairly quickly afterwards as long as you were careful not to splash too much! in terms of the plaster being dry enough to paint/tile over, it should only take a few days (though if you are tiling around the bath do you need to redo the plaster
underneath?)

DH is plasterer

He says if the plaster is around the shower, you should really tile it/paint it before you shower.

Takes a good week to dry out.
