Earning My Ears

I find this very different from the question posed, thus I don't think this is good idea. to compare the two, you would have taken some of the grandkids and left the other grandkids at home. I''m not sure how well or enjoyable it would be to look back on a scrapbook of "when Grampa and Gramma only too the grandkids they like"...When my wife and I did a Med./WBTA without our kids/gkids, three of the gkids were not happy (it was during school and way to long for them to take off). However, we told them we would take them with us anyway, ala Flat Stanley (look it up if you don't know about him). Our son-in-law photoshopped the faces of all five of them onto images of their favorite princesses (and prince). When we were in Parc Gruell in Barcelona we pulled them out (about 7" tall) and took photos of them by the signature lizard...likewise on Punta Delgada, at the leaning tower of Pisa, etc.
Perhaps you folks could do the same with Kid B and mention that you might take her on a future (when she calms down a bit) cruise. In the meantime, take photos of Kid B with Kid A and your daughter on various adventures on the cruise and show them to her when you return, maybe even do a small scrapbook. Good luck!
I also don't think in the original question you can take one without the other and not have the situation be hurtful.
