Why are pre/or post cruise options ridiculously expensive?
I have never seen a pre or post cruise hotel offer that was even reasonable. As example the cruise I'm going to in November wants $498pp for 2 nights hotel. Going to the hotels own web site the total comes to 313.50 euro(about $382). That's 2.6 times as much, $616 more.
Do they think we are stupid? Granted it includes pickup from hotel to pier but they don't even offer to pick you up from the airport.

Celebrity preferred but not required
Date, ship, cost pp
I would not book a a pre/post cruise stay through a cruise line. We precruise all the time, and, have never paid those high rates.
Doable on your own, through Priceline, Entertainment Book coupons, etc,we have whittled down the cost, to enjoy our 2 days in our favorite city, Lauderdale. In high season, the hotel rates published, are sky high, but, even this past March we got more favorable rates...
Trip, with her book & tea!
