Default Quickest way to get off ship at ports?

We're wondering what steps we need to take in advance to be able to get off the ship as soon as possible at each port? What about when the cruise is over, what's the quickest way to be one of the first people off?

Also, when in a port, are we able to get back on the ship for lunch if we want to?

Yes you can get on and off the ship at your leisure at ports. We almost always came back to the ship for lunch and then got off again to explore. I figured why pay for lunch on the island when we have already paid for it on the ship.

The first group to get off the ship at the end of the cruise are those taking an excursion at the final destination and those with early flights. Otherwise you sit and wait until your color is called which is in a random order.

I never had a problem gettting off the ship at an island. There never was a line or anything like that. The line can form getting back on because they x-ray your bags and you walk through a metal detector.
