Family Vacation

My family is planning a special family vacation in the new year. My 14 year old son has announced that he does not want to go. It’s a family trip so I think that he should not get to dictate what the whole family does and just have to go. My husband thinks it is too expensive to spend money when he will just make everyone miserable and wreck the trip. (Something he has, in fact, done on other trips.) What should we do?
