So at this point, the Federation was at relative peace, and would not yet have adjusted their UPS.
However, notice that Starfleet was already bolstering their forces... there are at least 2 Sabers and 2 Akiras being build, along with at least 3 Galaxies (as I said...rewatched that scene).
Edit: AND, in the next cut, there is in fact a second Excelsior...
Edit 2: AND a 3'd in a shot from Janeways ready room...
