When I was looking (bathroom fan) there were condensation traps that would catch the dripping but that had then to be piped somewhere. I ended up using solid pipes (round and rectangular) going up from the bathroom, then downwards and venting out downwards through the eaves. I guess, any moisture by the time it condenses it will be on the downward slope. Do not use the coil plastic pipes ... eventually moisture will find a way out and straight on top of your ceiling.

If you decide to go through the ceiling check for some pipes or "things" that would provide some fire protection for the pipes.

PS. Here is a condensation trap I just found. I would still chose to go for the eaves though.
