With its three cruise brands now back in service, Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings plans to have 13 ships sailing commercially by December 1, 2021.
While Norwegian leads the way, with nine vessels slated to sail, Oceania and Regent are also speeding up their restart plans.
According to Cruise Industry news, here is the latest brand by the brand update:
Norwegian Cruise Line

After a 500-day operational pause, Norwegian Cruise Line resumed service in July with a series of Eastern Mediterranean cruises.
Currently, the brand has six vessels back in revenue operations, offering cruises in North America, the Caribbean, and Europe.
With three more ships returning by December 1, the company will return to additional destinations, including the West Coast–where the Norwegian Bliss is welcoming guests back on Oct. 24. Based in Los Angeles, the 4,200-guest ship offers a program of Mexican Riviera cruises through 2022.
While two other vessels are returning in 2021, the balance of the 17-ship fleet is slated to resume service next year.
Oceania Cruises 
Status: Two ships currently in service

  1. Marina; and
  2. Riviera

Oceania Cruises resumed revenue service in August with the Marina. The vessel welcomed passengers back in Denmark for a series of cruises to Western Europe, the Mediterranean, and the Green Isle.
A second ship, the Riviera, joined the active lineup recently, offering additional itinerary choices in the Mediterranean.
In December, the upper-premium brand is also resuming service with the Insignia–which will offer a Panama Canal cruise before kicking off its epic six-month-long “Around the World in 180 Days” voyage.
Phased restart dates for the balance of the Oceania Cruises fleet continue next, with three more vessels resuming guest operations in 2022.

With two ships now in service, Regent Seven Seas Cruises plans to have its entire fleet back in action by early 2022.
The luxury brand first restarted revenue operations in September, with the 2019-built Seven Seas Splendor. After resuming its inaugural season in Northern Europe, the vessel is currently sailing in the Mediterranean ahead of a winter season in the Caribbean.
The Seven Seas Explorer joined the active lineup recently, offering additional voyages in Europe.
A third Regent ship returning in December, slated to sail a Panama Canal cruise before beginning an epic World Cruise in January.
