Here are some previous similar questions with answers which might help - but bear in mind the final finish (doors if any and wall/floor materials) can easily make a 200-500% difference in cost - typically about double between a prefab acrylic or fiberglass and cheap tile, and many fold more increase with fancy tile or stone, or with solid glass (frameless) shower door. Can run as cheap as a couple thousand if you keep the plumbing the same locations and use a prefab surround and base, to more commonly $5000-10,000 for a full replacement with tile and nicer glass doors.

Oh - BTW - walk-ins are all fine and dandy, and no-sill roll-in configuration may be needed for a handcapped or limited mobility person - but are an invitation to water damage without at least a low sill and doors. It is possible to make a shower a walk-in or wheelchair accessible and still have a small sill, combined with interior slope to drain away from the bathroom floor. Can also be done with bypass doors in a self-draining track to keep the water in the shower.


Note also that walk-ins without door or curtain release a LOT of mist and fog into the bathroom (and sometimes adjacent room or hall too) so commonly need an upgraded bathrom fan to keep the bathroom from becoming a mold farm.
