Is cholera only transmitted through ingestion of dirty water?

In brief: No

You can get it directly from another person through fecal-oral contact.
Which may seem unlikely, but if you clean up someone's diarrhea and don't wash your hands, you'll probably get it.

In brief: No

Cholera is spread when feces infected by Vibrio cholerae contaminates water or food.
Inadequately cooked seafood can be a cause. It is most often seen in areas with poor sanitation & deficient water treatments. Person to person transmission is rare.
