Thank you! Defiance sounds good. Anyone ever seen it?
Yes, it was good.

I just saw the new Project Witness film, Rosja. Very moving.

We will have one weekday night to go out to a nice dinner in Toronto. Staying downtown at the Adelaide Hotel (SPG, soon to be St. Regis). Which is better, and why: Marron or Windsor Arms?

Here is something else to think about: When Chazal said that boarding earlier in the week is ok, werenít they speaking of non-stop trips continuing on through into Shabbos? Would that exception apply if there were stops for exit and re boarding on Thursday or Friday?

50
There are so many things that no longer apply today that we still do anyway.

Why is this one different?
In this case, a Talmudic era boat would still be prohibited nowadays, but our modern cruise ships are entirely different entities never imagined or ruled upon by Chazal back in the day.

51
Correct. Unless youíre concerned that you may have to do melacha on Shabbos fixing the boat, or the ship turbulence in a storm will ruin your oneg Shabbos.

I am also thinking that staying in Milan vs by Lake Como also has advantage of minyan for davening. What is the closest Shul to the Marriot, and morning Shachris time(s)?

 I was thinking of taking the Bernina Express, scenic route train, from Zurich to Chur then on to Tirano, Italy, and then train down to Milan Italy. Long day, but supposedly worthwhile. Any experience or thoughts on this?    Is kosher food ever served on Swiss trains?

Any questions let me know, I will try to help.

Thanks for that helpful information. I have 2 questions, for you or anyone or may know:

1. Trying to decide whether (a) to stay in Varenna on Lake Como for 2 or 3 nights and travel in each evening to Milan for dinner by train (looks like 1 hour, 3 minutes via train to Milan Central Station, then a 10 minute cab ride to restaurants); or (b) vice-versa, stay at the Marriott Milan and travel in via train for day trips to Lake Como. I wish they had an UberEats/Seamlees type delivery but apparently they will not go that far, as much as I can ascertain. If you are still there, can you make inquiry on this conundrum. Any thoughts on this from anyone?

2.  Do you know how it is to stay at the Marriott for Shabbos and eat with Chabad? I heard that they have a Chabad minyan at the Marriott?

I stayed in the Sheraton in the city of Como
I see on line that itís 37 minutes by train from Como to  Milan. I wonder if it makes sense to travel in for dinners?
