Animal Planet's Treehouse Masters
On the recent season of Treehouse Masters, we saw Pete Nelson and his crew build a one-of-a-kind treehouse at Princess Cruises’ Mt. McKinley Wilderness Lodge. The build was highlighted on the finale episode in Denali State Park, Alaska. The treehouse, now open to visitors, is constructed for mountain high relaxation with spectacular views of Denali. Experience it only on a cruisetour with Princess.
Treehouse Masters is produced for Animal Planet by Discovery Studios.

It’s not just one week anymore. Inspired by Discovery's popular Shark Week, Princess has designed a variety of activities and games that will challenge adults and kids alike on the myths and interesting facts about sharks.
