Decommissioned means either scrapped or kept around as a hulk, or a
using for live-fire exercises. Basically, it is no longer a going
as an operational vessel (though might be good for training crews to
damage etc) and cannot economically be made so.

Exactly, though ships "in reserve" may actually be put into a "reserve
and still be operationally viable without notice. Generally, this means
"ships available after a delay if required"
