The US Navy aircraft carrier CVN-65 USS Enterprise arrived in Piraeus for a 3 day visit.

The renowned aircraft carrier is conducting her last deployment. She is scheduled for decommissioning on 1 December 2012. She arrived in Greece with Ticonderoga class cruiser CG-69 USS Vicksburg. This may be the last time for both ships to spend in Piraeus. Like USS Enterprise this is the last deployment for USS Vicksburg too. She will be deactivated in 2013.

The Enterprise Carrier Strike Group is comprised of CVN-65 USS Enterprise, Carrier Air Wing 1, Destroyer Squadron 2, USS Vicksburg (CG 69), and guided-missile destroyers DDG -78 USS Porter, DDG-94 USS Nitze, and DDG -95  USS James E. Williams.
