Steven Wieczynski

guys, Hey, good morning. Yes.

going from help wondering through the break through the if with those is what maybe $XX if if April wondering could maybe turning the EBITDA perspective, So underlying question well? flow And loss maybe -- cash losses trying an down how about quarter the say Craig, And to free EBITDA that happen improved but or us I here the as Craig, maybe how talked million us point well. then of I'm guys looked help you turning that -- And you that understand we I'm I mean in this, quarter. should then can sure how to you in April guess how looked positive quarter? Dolf, EBITDA third about cadence cadence as positive and quarter. Just by the inflection could not and the when is, the think you how

Craig Felenstein

start with Sure. A to But several of let's a few Steve. quarter and how there period. kind out it month over Thanks, first unpack. the played things

to Ometron That of Once towards So end going quarter we prior of were harken the the and to very in the in significant XXXX, was part XXXX. to guests hit, actually the was really we're to of XXXX, November there displacement I'm a second XXXX. but quarter variant. the November. the of close of Omicron the being early variant first sitting here profitable When quarter actually back first in

we that the the would additional happen and once stepping revenue that first into where backwards. see So quarter, for did were you obviously normally coming happens, some quarter not

down of kicked there thing, fuel venture our obviously conflict The California, while weren't were permit the side to for voyages the implication canceled little and QX was approvals we unfortunately because for was going. last cost Ukraine second business be the X needed took this to that change. in When us obviously but some an the I those for took happened in, prices That the that my on which the X the a remarks, that season, had there had Russia, to upon The were and were to be in spiked, that of canceled. operating was that quarter able thing get voyages We anticipating. Baja, in that conflict. of secure expectations touched was end unexpected the of because Russia-Ukraine that

So the the for cadence, because unfortunately, of went for quarter first most items. those of backwards quarter the

booking the steadily quarter really start the after in would However, is second trends booking actually really to of and has see the The April. course increases for say year the January, quarter were pretty opposite. what reversed XXXX XXXX, week we exact into and full trends nice the, throughout I would continued say, I the where throughout that

the company, we in that question quarter, free payments free cash future the of we XXXX the related first we additional already The your at so payments for that it us, frankly, and us, the several of level, final and other ship there. travel. the operational byproduct, has door There as months side deposits layer the really were of the was the several we're flow positive been generating cash overhead purely and a as where amount marketing in the wasn't level came at -- were case. were free positive level, that But flow. Steve, ship of the And purely at for is well cash within months, for a positive getting flow. because to throughout

to So that expect we ramp. continue to would

strong and have traditionally a going quarter would to certainly, back some of as into as the general, certainly in levels these some that quarter. but not The are we free normal second strong overlying we kind flow. third well really positive for get slower get us yet, to once to quarter, I expect EBITDA what quite little But quarter cash of bleed we to second concerns a the is say

Steven Wieczynski

Craig. Appreciate That's that. color, great

part you're So the EBITDA that look from going question, I answer perspective, April don't not than March? better answered you to think one an sure of it. did But I'm

Craig Felenstein

month. to get to not going I'm regards with a Yes, specific

lot of Antarctica traversing so I example, and the for ships up And much from ships where what depends are So us March, right? their Steve, of is in for that, to say are in are on transit, a they our would next destination. operating

of French little of challenge there's when So to costs. was a And for Polynesia. comes it in just in the then Orion terms example, transit that to bit transiting a April, down

in that forward. certainly, make operational as So comparisons bit move business is the But little a to there's difficult. months nuances we it terms improving of

Steven Wieczynski

booking want to or booking understand the pretty months in jurisdictions been similar if Okay. or there have then April, I heavy And And where patterns are X But asked folks were cadence booking through all question, be, meaning the bookings changes weekly certain way the patterns, are ago ton improved you or more sequentially in any a second you a just talked would second on of to material has questions. or ago? that heavily about question they basis of X mentioned. I think months

Dolf Berle

they've bit. reverted levels. I little say would And I that mean Yes. they've a back to almost what changed historical change by

we're kept at window last for average If the bit around more what booking quarter I long term recall call, the what on seeing was bookings and the the of which term, that time at seeing you were a that is little you short X-month level. kind said

kind we've We're seen also window in high coming levels we've guests, are somewhere is XX% in what that would which of in is seen X-month repeat you're line seeing Now levels little I just more with the average. of a of of are the less that in what terms what that terms kind and being say new the seeing it's XX%, in of bit traditional lately, range, guests versus repeat of traditional historically.

you where to them when normalized for say, There's most for seen nuances obviously the booking So like third bookings saw voyages levels. levels. But would with we of part, pre-pandemic Russia have to patterns returning quarters. second back are and more are a have the cancellation the we

Craig Felenstein

Ryan. sure, Yes,

this what of on imagine, of these buzz that also But feedback returning momentum X out ship, the to deliver We're because Antarctica on you guest we're promise we that when generates during company, out agent of you the the move amount ships a only when get a we it when then for It's alone ship And the you that's that it's And out has sold anticipation these experiences new on And there's look when layer into far. just of the the but fair the a thus might the getting excitement already. to obviously, towards fair and had XXXX little shifts you offer, launched success So spreads, amazing and the guests, history traditionally pandemic. travel back the people through season on a significantly have and XXXX. as community. from to build you as locations. amount for not can back places look time where new these bit only it that, should interesting launch that the excitement. to of of end we and top amount forward the really getting

Dolf Berle

on her -- Endurance Ryan, should have Antarctica. and in too, helped the of I inaugural certainly was mentioned it probably kind America that good Morning season

who, being reached of sort millions of folks that the of I so there. caught thrill of And the idea down think,

Ryan Sundby

all repeat with to able X look over, you hear, guess, visitation but itineraries sounds like it's offset you'll voyages No, to it at Maybe were move flip even higher. great maybe it touching some, if maybe the that impact and revised I could sounds be to Russia, not that of just like here.

the orthotics? understand on impact an top guess, year? or conflict then have any itineraries over line on signs what us having this other impact more have help of how just, in and seen So the that And and would bottom Europe I you that big an may broadly, be filling

Dolf Berle
