I sort of expect that's all wrong, but I don't have the maths to work out how.
No, you are correct. There are parts of the universe we will never see, because space is expanding, and the rate of expansion (as near as we can tell) is accelerating. That means that in however-many-billion (trillion?) years, all we will be able to see will be our local galacy group (which will probably eventually merge into a single elliptical galaxy by that time).
