Looks like a moisture issue coming from above the ceiling to me.
Is it just the picture is that whole area near to the walls all yellow?

Small bubbling like that is usually moisture-related and most likely caused by using the shower/bath before the paint had a chance to cure.

Sand out the bubbles, spot-prime with a fast-dry primer like Zinnser 1-2-3 and refinish.

Be sure the room is well ventilated when using hot water,

#1 A bathroom with no powered vent will be nothing but trouble.
Make that a #1 priority to add a vent that exohost all the way to the outside.
Main reason it's no longer legal to have just a window in a bathroom.

That yellow is surfactant that normally dries into the film; it is like soap, which helps the oils and the water in paint coalesce together. It is moisture-related during the curing process. Its leaching out will not hurt the integrity of the film. It will wash off with clear water on a rag. Do it while it is fresh. It may recur until the paint is fully cured.

Is installing a ceiling light/fan that vents to the outside feasible? I bought a Panasonic fixture and it works great.

I agree with venting is priority, window or fan preferred (for a palce this wet, would book fan to light switch, when in use, fan is on). For registers, use aluminum, no paint, anodized preferred- more corrosion resistant.. Cheap. When register is nasty, replace. For paint on walls, prefer semi-gloss enamel.

Fan vent can be flex 3" aluminum run to where it can point out existing attic vent. I avoid protrusions through the roof, simpler, cheaper and one less protrusion to leak and work around and just a cleaner looking roof. I've seen guys that think everything has to go through roof where it is, they are mistaken and they have too many roof jacks, unsightly, expensive and more to maintain and keep from leaking. I will even run all plumbing vents together with appropriate slope and make just one 3or 4" vent through where possible. This is within code as well.

I find that setup annoying, personally. Maybe you or your guests will too. If it's important, you can hook up a humidity sensing fan, although they're more expensive.

In Joe's defense I must add that his computer may not have that handy ABC thing in the corner. Mine doesn't.

But Joe...seriously.. everybody makes typo's from time to time, but its easy to see a certain painter is going insane.

He has tools ya know and personally I wouldn't take the risk that the spelling corrections may end up being painted somewhere.

Chris...while you are there will you please CONSIDER fixing DIFFERENT..
