it is a place i am meant to go for a quest i am on, and i have restarted and relogged multiple times..
I suspect you might have an early companion promotion quest and need to get to Monquista, and you'll just have to keep doing the story quests until you are able to access the area for that promotion. Pirates need to earn their ability to sail the various stormgates in the Spiral. Membership alone does not give all-access to the game.
However, if you had a friend already in that other area, you should be able to teleport to them and continue the promotion quest. This is why you will see pirates in Avery's Court asking to be taken to locations by higher level pirates.
