Your first problem was making it “us” v. “her.” You should have just said that no cousins are invited at all and it is just you and the older generation to focus on your birthday. Try to shift the focus to it being about you instead of what it isn’t about, her.

In my experience on the cruise ship, you go with people but, unlike other vacations, you don’t need to spend any time with them.  As in, cruises allow everyone to make the vacation what they want it to be.  For some relaxing and for others lots of activity.  So the cousin can come, and you might not have to see her that much.

Um, you’re going on a freakin cruise for your 21st birthday. Can’t you just ignore the drama and get excited?

@mattsgirl813: You didn’t say your grandmother was even going on the cruise?

Either way, I think it’s all very childish. I can’t believe your aunts would cancel if this person came.  I understand not liking a person and not wanting them to be at something, but I can’t believe you are all fighting over it this badly. At this point, I feel bad for your cousin for putting up with the attitudes. One person cannot make drama alone; you say the cousin always has drama, but you and your family are all feeding into it. Someone needs to be an adult here and just say, “Look, I am going to go on this cruise and enjoy mysel, no matter who else is on the ship, too.”

You’re 21.  I think this is a decision you need to make as an adult. I’m sure the ship is large enough for both of you.
