This no confirmed - just what I read - a CNN report said there was extensive damage to Palo and Remy but the is all it said. No details.

Yup, read that too. I was hoping for more info. I hope everything can be fixed quickly! Lol..I need my soufflé! Also, hoping the damage to cc was not too bad. Feel horrible for all the people who missed it and may miss it...haven't heard anything from disney yet as to damage...guess it cannot be assessed yet?

may want to check out this thread and the very end of the CNN video linked...not much but could be the tip of the iceberg (no pun intended)

I just looked at someone's blog - there was a link to it in one if the threads. It showed several of the windows broken and missing in either Palo or Remy - I don't remember which it said. I will try to find the link - it has some good pictures and from looking at those pictures I know Disney is great and can work fast but I would not have wanted to be on the cruise that left saturday night. I have to imagine a lot of things are still a mess.

There's a thread going now called Riding the Sandy, I think.
In it he details watching crew members flip desks and lay merchandise on the deck to prevent breakage. Now go back and watch the video's aftermath portions. Makes more sense now, why the products fell into neat little piles.
Disney always has a contingency plan.
I'm very sorry you were frightened and did not get the idyllic cruise pamphlet vacation that others did. Sounds like a rotten time of it.

I was on board. Sat am I walk through Remy. Looked fine. Minor issues. Palo had more damage, but trust me, they will be up and functioning, even today, if you can handle the movement. On our sailing most canceled their adult dinner appts. due to the motion friday.
HTH

BTW, in the shops, those neat little piles were create during clean up process. They eventually created pile of tables and chairs that didn't go overboard on the outter/upper decks. Then tied them up.
