It is totally normal for really young children to be curious about naked bodies. Not to say that you want to encourage his unwanted behaviors, but it's not crazy. I would not shame him when attempting to curb this behavior, in other words, don't be dramatic when you tell him "no". Do not let him use the restroom when people are showering, simple as that. Tell him it is inappropriate to stare at others in their private time and tell him he will need to use the bathroom before-hand. With kissing on the lips, I think you just have to keep encouraging him to kiss on the cheek every time. He is so young, he will grow out of these behaviors, so long as you don't make them a huge deal.

Then you make sure he goes to the toilet (it's not a potty) before anyone needs to shower and don't let him go again until the bathroom is free. It's becoming a habit that you need to break.
My daughter got into the habit of having to go to the toilet as soon as we sat down to eat. We make sure she goes before we sit down and she's not allowed to go until we've finished. It can be done, you just need to be consistent.

You could also take the potty out of the bathroom when someone is in there and close the door.

It is normal but if it keeps going on talk to him about girls needing privacy just like him.
