Data collected by trade organization Cruise Lines International Association shows that a majority of “cruisers” are likely to go on a trip relatively soon, USA Today reports. In fact, results show 73% of cruise enthusiasts surveyed would go on a cruise within a few years.

A majority of those respondents also said they would go on a cruise within one year.

This data, meanwhile, was collected before news broke of vaccines being available within the next few months.

“Our data shows that cruisers are eager to cruise again and are willing to follow stringent public health measures in order to return to sailing," said Bari Golin-Blaugrund, vice president of strategic communications for the trade organization, to the outlet. “People have grown accustomed to taking such precautions on land and understand it is a small sacrifice to make in order to experience the joy of cruising while maintaining a focus on the health and safety of oneself and others.”
