(11:20 a.m. EST) -- Silversea Cruises has pushed its restart dates out to April, May and -- in the case of three ships -- June 2021.

The restart dates are the latest that any cruise line has announced. It means that by the time it returns to the water, Silversea will have been non-operational for well over a year, as the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak led to a worldwide suspension of cruising in March.

The only other line to push back sailing so deep into next year is Cunard with Queen Elizabeth to resume sailings March 25, 2021; Queen Mary 2 cruises through April 18, 2021 and Queen Victoria until May 16, 2021.

The news comes despite the lifting of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention lifting its No-Sail Order last month and the news Monday of a possible COVID-19 vaccine.

Silversea is owned by the Royal Caribbean Group, which has extended pause on operations on its other lines (Royal Caribbean International, Celebrity Cruises and Azamara) through the end of 2020.
