In The Undiscovered Country, the Enterprise is 1701-A is decommissioned, because of Kirks actions, however justifiable. This leads to the assumption that Starfleet was not exactly thrilled with him.

They were all retiring or moving onto other assignments anyways. They were due to stand down in three months according to Kirk.
Preventing a likely galactic war (had the UFP President been assinated) I suspect command would be delighted with him. We also have no idea how old the 1701-A was. Command might have recieved preliminary damaged reports and decided the ship wasn't worth the effort of repairing.
True, another refit of the Enterprise could be tedious....
