You will usually receive a questionnaire around the mid point of your cruise. It will ask what your post-cruise plans are: What time is your flight, excursion, etc. Just ask for self-disembarkation on the sheet.
On the last full day of the cruise you will receive your "luggage tags" and they should be marked as self-disembarkation or a color code that indicates this. If they do not, just go to the customer service desk and request them.
I would not recommend self-disembarkation if you have more luggage than you can easily handle. Two people with five suitcases, two carry-ons and a laptop bag aren't good for self-disembarkation.
I think Paul gave the best answer. The taxi/limo service will know best.
