during that loss we generated quarter the the we given months. break quarter. not the But lowest So the revenues was certainly, by month obviously, June that going we're of out to had,

docks June they're ahead ships, to to so ships the ready July. back, things we big frankly and portion that of that personnel they're there incur some obviously also necessary cognizant that prepping of as that crew still that costs vaccinated making doing you is begin vaccinated, right are that We're bringing of to and back, launch, those but sure a are throughout have now sailing all sure of throughout on office making dry One bringing well. all includes any go be and

cost fair of a take operations. there of that So place amount is ahead

marks, and basis. to here you positive so While reach to to an it's on answer. sit really still or operations There flow tell and I we're is positive would hard EBITDA cash when love question many going

for next when still So able look guest than specifically which example, don't But those out demand, is we'll short of and to in has right to cash open, the several of XXXX. the as we be geographies, for certain be it, company for heading do we - within as some time. got geographies. we aren't breakeven the year Certainly reach direction. rest we'll able to flow operating XXXX specifically period know go obviously up EBITDA positivity uncertainty all, the open in plan certain geographies in to the on the when more to And long that all feel we a months, over

Steve Wieczynski

that as as we operating ready has are the to a get along going when And commissions, cost that at of hopefully, deposits these At well. continuing those you're look base we for marketing August, and spending with significant. And the credit month to same in in of XXXX. time, you're July for when come are and So on looking card up ships ships with bunch all will cost ratchet all comes right. then the the have be cost full further to those to travel these at further And are that you coming future drive it. coming in future look for coffers that along a goes out, that payments even lastly, travel then a

pay to you're to and have the We commissions, because money good out spending those have door going a cost it's on future revenues.

So base. a second - in when ratchet you do towards think out see of will end up look the quarter. cost you sorry, And of that quarter end I the third the the

you You're that you going to were similar of were the we levels top which operating in have when additional more costs. that, some an obviously Endurance, ship has additional fleet. And color, to back on providing to be the keep XXXX reaching

Chris Woronka

that months year than these you of breakeven, there way if to we you're assume wouldn't to are a to that any is that question a of percentage number all be a that's there? point with of - then fully when margins you think we triangulate to XXXX we're there way just to all it's think helpful. inventory certain with number have? Craig, higher great, any incremental of Okay expenses there whether Or probably this inventory is, back Craig, out the that basically second capacity, get operational and for then happening now, reason normal is a your at And percentage next at back what to they were we in ships and have or EBITDA is about

Craig Felenstein

Sure, It's these how regards with answer question. difficult much question really get first and ships started operational at let to to of requires a me with variability also geography. because each there's each, start the the to in least again so what realities are,

that an aircraft be Let cost Antarctica. to have example. overall and moving the certainly operate there down to fly certainly changes you me It's likelihood our level certainly previously. high a if that changes but is the That it's cost been structure us, to the will the able Right using are forward now, not charter still structure folks same Antarctica of it give would organization. at we for season, profitable we profitable

there's a go into that variety this. of So factors

hard be in each at certainly, from occupancy percent company a level, can an won't say, anywhere So it's about be as I profitable new now. ship profitable XX% And not because on really ex basis, ship most, right a plus normal think geographies. on you will for when to of me a that say there's what ship occupancy it overall

but profitable enough get to will from level to the ships So us a be ship water certainly these water us the in back perspective. the we in feel company will have having perspective, all that to there ships certainly from scale getting a allow allow

be having for terms not way I levels water, moving geographies forward, see Antarctica still fully all the challenges way Because that we of charter at ships XXXX have only in expansion with our potentially there margins certain they're seven a open. said, expect again, some to don't our the supposed would still of fleet, at. to perspective XXXX sit That fleet. and expand when will will may margin and company expanding water, the have occupancies the we that be in the because, six we That be XXXX forward at it's certain ships. to In when the as or scale of we obviously the looking continue our hard we regards you're back from to all get to and to get economies they're we're supposed that of say
