excusado / taza


Explanation:
Both words are used in Chile. Perhaps one of them is more acceptable than the other throughout the Spanish speaking world.

taza/vater/inodoro


Explanation:
Here in Spain we use several terms for that concept. The most common is 'vater' and 'taza', although in a more formal context inodoro should be used.
Both retrete and escusado refer just to the place not to the specific thing.
Good luck!
