swapping steam shower with tub and shower

We're looking to get a our master bathroom renovated. One of our top priorities is to install a soaking tub - a freestanding one in place of our current steam shower. We don't use the steam shower and my wife would really like a nice tub instead. I'm a quick shower kind of guy so that area will need to have a shower as well and I don't want to shower in the tub.
We are restricted with the space allocated to the tub/shower area. The current steam room is 5 x 5.5 feet and we might gain an additional couple of inches when the wall is replaced with a glass pane.

I'm crowdsourcing your thoughts on the feasibility of having a tub and a shower in that space - from a dimensions perspective. What should I be researching and exploring in terms of design options and ideas for similar setups.
