In brief: Dehydration
First, i would question the diagnosis - most healthy travelers do not get cholera due to their healthy stomach acidity defense.
However, if you have choleral you can expect profuse, watery diarrhea. Treatment is aggressive hydration! using an electrolyte / rehydration salt solution can be lifesaving! ors (oral rehydration salt) packets can be purchased or made with (safe) water, sugar, & salt.

In brief: Vomiting, diarrhea
Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea are the symptoms.
The problem arises when pt can't keep down antibiotics protracting the illness. Hand washing is very important to interrupt spread.
