I don't think any prefinished laminate wood flooring will stand up th moisture. I tried to use a laminate oak (it was free) in my bathroom. I sealed the end cuts and the T&G plus added coats to the top. 6 years later, the black stain is showing around some edges. The flooring in temporary till I finish the remodel and install tile.

I did a red oak 3/4" wood bathroom floor in my house in CT and it looked like new when I sold it. I sanded the floor by hand and finished it with 7 coats of gloss Val-Oil.
