Hotel stay

Due to crazy flight times, before and after my cruise, which leaves from Pointe a Pitre, can anyone advise on hotels near the airport AND near the cruise terminal?

Any of the hotels in Gosier will be close to the airport and close to the cruise terminal. Generally people are warned away from staying right in Point a Pitre because some people fear it after dark.

Hotel La Maison Creole is an example of one in Gosier that I have stayed in a couple of times to be close to the airport for an early morning flight out. It is 15 minutes to the airport and a little less to the cruise ship area and is smack in a tourist zone. It is not on the water, but no need if you're just in and out anyway. They had an active front desk that could handle some things in English, like getting a taxi, for example. It has a pool if you want to at least get wet on your short transfers.

Consider spending a couple of nights on each end of your cruise if time allows and get out to some of the nice beaches, plus it would give you a buffer against any kind of snow travel delays.

Electrical is correct. Stay in Le Gosier. You do not want to stay in Pointe-a-Pitre. There is nowhere decent to stay downtown and it is not a good place to be at night.
